Additional information

Late-flowering Narcissus has 1 -2 white flowers with a small orange-colored corolla on every flowering stalk. It blooms in early winter, November – December. The leaves appear after the flowers, as in other histerant plants, the flowers are formed at the end of winter but remain hidden within the bulb until the blooming season.
The leaves are narrow and the flowers’ stalk performs a significant portion of the plant’s photosynthesis. 
Late-flowering Narcissus is protected by law in Israel and considered an endangered species since it can be found only in a small area in the northern coastal plain growing on sandstones.
