Jonquil Biology

Narcissus ×medioluteus (syn. Narcissus biflorus), common names Primrose-peerless, April Beauty, Cemetery Ladies, Loving Couples, Pale Narcissus, Twin Sisters, Two-flowered Narcissus) is a flowering plant which is a naturally occurring hybrid between Narcissus poeticus and Narcissus tazetta found in the West of France.

The flowers are generally held in pairs hence the common names "Twin Sisters" and "Loving Couples". The fragrant cream flowers (medioluteus) are smaller than those of Narcissus poeticus. The cup lacks a red edge.


Narcissus poeticus (Poet's Daffodil, Nargis, Pheasant's Eye, Findern Flower, and Pinkster Lily) was one of the first daffodils to be cultivated, and is frequently identified as the narcissus of ancient times—often associated with the Greek legend of Narcissus. Extremely fragrant, with a ring of petals in pure white and a short corona of light yellow with a distinct reddish edge, Poet's Daffodil grows to 20 to 40 cm (7.9 to 16 in) tall and is widely naturalized in North America and Europe.
