These narcissi, sometimes called ‘Angels’ tears’ grow in the wild in Spain and Portugal. They usually have 2 to 6 flowers to a stem. Their distinguishing feature is that the perianth petals flare back and away from the cup so that the cup is more conspicuous. The flowers are always angled downward.
These low-growing little narcissi have a definite preference for somewhat damp habitats. They are also frequently used in rock gardens.
