Narcissus Division Four

This page contains pictures and information about Narcissus classified under Division 4: Double Daffodils. Narcissus in this division have one or more flowers to a stem, with doubling of the corona (cup), perianth segments (petals), or both. Double daffodils often survive for a long time in the garden, and their flowers last much longer than single daffodils, but flowers can be too heavy for the stems.

Narcissus 'Eystettensis' is an ancient variety, its name derives from Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at Eichstätt) 1611, written by Basilius Besler (1561–1629) to record the garden of the bishop of Eichstätt, Baveria.
