Common Jonquil

Hexandria Monogynia
Generic Character
Petala sex. Nectario infundibuliformi, monophyllo.Stamina intra nectarium.
Specific Character and Synonyms
NARCISSUS Jonquilla spatha multiflora, nectario hemisphærico crenato, breviore petalis, foliis semiteretibus. Lin. Spec. Pl. p. 417.

The fragrant Jonquil is a native of Spain, flowers in the open ground, about the latter-end of April, or beginning of May, and will thrive in almost any soil or situation, but prefers, as most bulbs do, a fresh loamy earth; indeed such a soil is favourable to the growth of most plants, as being exempt from a variety of subterraneous insects, which are apt to infest ground which has been long cultivated.

It is found in the gardens with double flowers.

Our plant accords exactly with the description of Linnæus, above quoted, but must be carefully distinguished from some others very similar to it.
