The March birth flower is the jonquil, also known as daffodil, narcissus or paperwhites. The term paperwhites is generally used for tiny white flowers that grow in clusters and daffodil for single, trumpet-shaped flowers. The name Daffodils includes the white Narcissi and the cluster-flowered yellow Jounquils. There is literally no difference between Narcissus and Daffodils. The two words are synonymous. Daffodils are most commonly yellow but you can also find them white, cream, orange and a pinkish tint either in a single or bi-color pattern. All narcissus varieties contain the alkaloid poison lycorine, mostly in the bulb but also in the leaves therefore this march birth flower is poisonous and can be harmful or deadly if eaten. It is native to the Meditteranean, but has been cultivated all over the world as a decorative plant.
