DistributionVerified from Dare (Roanoke Island), Edgecombe, Macon, Orange, and Polk counties. A specimen from Guilford County is N. pseudonarcissus; the specimen from Buncombe County appears to be N. tazetta.

Native of Spain and Portugal; in N.A. MD to IL south to SC and TX.
HabitatRoadsides, "near trailers" (Macon Co.).
PhenologyFlowering and fruiting March-April.
IdentificationThe Jonquil has all-yellow flowers, but lacks the long tubular "corona" of the more often seen Common Daffodil (N. pseudonarcissus). Instead, the corona is very short. Even though not seen as often as that species, most people are familiar with Jonquil from gardens and arboretums.
