Description: Flowers have six petals in a star shape with a central cup facing out. Colors are yellow, white, or bi-color.
Myth/Legend: Greek mythology tells us the name is associated with the young man Narcissus, with whom the nymph Echo fell in love. He was vain and cared only for his own beauty. He spurned her and she died of a broken heart. The Gods were angry with Narcissus. While he was looking at his reflection in a pool of water the Gods changed him into a flower and named it after him.
