About Daffodils


A substance extracted from daffodil bulbs, galantamine, is used as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease. The daffodil is often associated with hope, positivity, and new beginnings. Daffodils in victorian tirmes where known to represent chivalry and unrequited love. Nowadays they symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, hope, joy, and good luck. Their species name is Narcissus pseudonarcissus.The exact origin of the name Narcissus is unknown, but it is often linked to a Greek word (ancient Greek ναρκῶ narkō, "to make numb") and the myth of the youth of that name who fell in love with his own reflection.

Daffodil plants have a single flower on a long green stalk, with green leaves growing from the base of the stem. The flowers have yellow or white petals surrounding a trumpet, which can be a similar or of a contrasting colour. Daffodils grow between 5 to 80cm tall in full sun, though they will grow in partial shade. They're generally not picky about soil, but good drainage is vital as they are susceptible to rot when kept too wet. They grow in grasslands, forests, along riverbanks, and rocky areas.


The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

The speaker of this poem, sees golden daffodils while he is walking on the countryside expressing his emotions he is feeling in that moment

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. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

William Wordsworth

In the poem they describe the golden daffodils. It describes the impression of the poet on seeing the daffodils while he walks in the countryside. Whenever he felt 'dejected or depressed', he would remember the field of daffodils and have tender thoughts for them. This brought him out of his depressed state. I know it was a depressed mood because, when he says that he saw some daffodils, he started to speak with positive words trying to return to happiness. The poet considers the daffodils to be stars in the sky. In this way, the speaker notes how the flowers seem to go on without end, alongside a bay. The speaker was looking at the daffodils being very thoughtful and hypnotized In this moment of solitude, the poet concludes on the experience of the daffodils as the way to happiness, so in the mind of the poet, he is again dancing “with the daffodils.” The poem is an attempt to make people realize the way to true happiness and joy.
