The daffodil is considered the national flower of Wales. Other cultivars have frilled petals or compressed central corona. Some professional breeders have newly developed some daffodils with a double or triple row of petals, making them resemble a small golden ball. The reason for the introduction of the initial "d" is not known, although a probably because it is an etymological merging from the Dutch article "de," as in "De affodil." The Daffodil normally has a yellow color but the corona can produce contrasting color such as that of a slice of lime. The name Daffodil is taken from an earlier "Affodell", a variant of Asphodel.

The range of forms in cultivation has been vastly modified and extended, with new variations available in nurseries almost every year. They are mostly native to the Mediterranean region, but a few species are also found through Central Asia to China. Several Narcissus species bloom in the autumn. Narcissus is the botanic synonym for a genus of hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs. Daffodil is a common English name, sometimes used now for all narcissus.
