Como símbolo del renacimiento y de los nuevos comienzos, el narciso es prácticamente sinónimo de primavera. Though their botanic name is narcissus, daffodils are sometimes called jonquils, and in England, because of their long association with Lent, they're known as the "Lent Lily." Lore connecting the daffodil to not only a sign of winter's end but a lucky emblem of future prosperity is found throughout the world. In Wales, it's said if you spot the first daffodil of the season, your next 12 months will be filled with wealth, and Chinese legend has it that if a daffodil bulb is forced to bloom during the New Year, it will bring good luck to your home.
The March birth flower and the 10th wedding anniversary flower, a gift of daffodils is said to ensure happiness. Pero siempre recuerde colocar a los narciso en un ramo: la misma leyenda que asocia esta alegre flor con la buena fortuna nos advierte que cuando se la regala como un solo ramo, el narciso puede predecir mala fortuna.
