Daffodil Collection

Daffodil Collection

Narcissus spp.

Daffodils are the official flower of New York City and 43 varieties of this beloved flower call Madison Square Park home. An array of white, green, and pink daffodils can be found blooming in our gardens from February through April. Our daffodil collection was first planted as part of the Daffodil Project, a city-wide remembrance program to honor the victims of September 11—and the origin of their status as the city’s official flower. The species is native to the meadows and forests of southern Europe and North Africa. They are often the first wild flowers to appear in the spring and are used in festivals around the world to celebrate the end of winter.
