Erlicheer gained its name from being among the first of the Narcissus varieties to bloom. These are white, dainty and fragrant with many flowers on a stem. Narcissus have a wide range of cultural values attached to them, from vanity in the western world to fortune and prosperity in the East, due to their strong seasonality and prevalence around the world. In New Zealand we know the daffodil as the icon of the Cancer Society, a symbol that is repeated around the world.
Our Weekly Bloom special this week is a bunch of Erlicheer in a small glass vase.
That's it for now, some other Narcissus varieties will no doubt be popping up here as the season gets in to full swing!
