A flowering bulb well known to many gardeners, is the miniature daffodil Narcissus Tete-a-Tete.  This lovely unassuming flower of late winter and early spring is a welcome sight soon after winter’s cold has passed in the nothern hemisphere.  It is an intriguing plant in many regards, not the least of which is its somewhat uncertain origin.
