The French Daffodil

The French Daffodil (Narċis in Maltese) is a perennial type of plant, with flowers that bloom from November to March.

It is found mostly in uncultivated areas, valleys and less frequently in garigue habitats.

It is a monocot type of plant, that grows from underground bulbs. From the middle of its leaves, grows a tall flowering stalk carrying between 3 and 12 flowers.

It is a protected species because unfortunately, it used to be collected (for sale) in large numbers!

The following document, prepared by Nicole M. Muscat and Stephanie Vassallo, describe the characteristics of the French Daffodil in more detail.
