Narcissus in bloom

They aren't all in bloom yet but most are. Give yourself ten points if you guessed the plant. This was the plant that sprang up after a boy with the same name withered away staring at his reflection. On another note, the flower has a strong ammonia smell. At first it smelled pretty good but then you start to pick up on the ammonia and the experience goes down hill from there. At least they're cool to look at. We're trying to figure out where we want to plant them. Maybe we'll start buying flowers and lining the side of our house with them.

Does anyone know if Narcissus come back each spring or are they one and done?

its a bulb- it should come back every year, however some bulbs need to be taken out of the ground and tossed in a box in the garage until spring the next year. Depending on the climate where you live.
