Winter Narcissus Competing With Snow

A Christmas gift that gives us the light of spring. Ah! but this plant is blooming in a warm climate and outside the flowers are still beautiful.

The single bulb came with its own ceramic pot and fertile growing media. The one bulb produced three stems of flowers. Many years ago people grew the bulbs in a bowl of marbles and water. Without the fertilize those bulbs seldom looked very good.
