Royal Pavilion Garden Plant of the Month, March 2019: Narcissus Pseudonarcissus

March’s plant was chosen by the Royal Pavilion Garden Volunteers, who help look after the gardens all year round.

They picked the Narcissus Pseudonarcissus our native daffodil that Wordsworth wrote about in his famous poem ‘I wandered Lonely As A Cloud’

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

It grows in groups and drifts which emphasises the naturalness of the Pavilion Garden.
