Putuoshan Narcissus

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/12

Putuoshan District boasts rich resources of wild narcissus, which has a long history. As early as the South Song Dynasty, there were written records about it. Since the 1970s, wild narcissus have been transplanted and cultivated. It wins favourable comments from flower experts for its large bulbs, numerous flowers and thick fragrance. In 1981, it was officially named Putuoshan Narcissus and ranked with Zhangzhou Narcissus and Chongming Narcissus as the three best varieties of narcissus in our country. It is the city flower of Zhoushan. Potted Putuoshan Narcissus can be cultivated in the water and the soil. Narcissus grown in water can further be divided into sculpted ones and non-sculpted ones. The sculpted narcissus is of all shapes with short plant, quietly elegant color and curly leaves. Its root, bulb, leave and flower all have ornamental value. Non-sculpted narcissus can grow into artistically spaced, tall and straight pottery with poetic grace and picturesque charm as long as the time of growing in water and temperature is well controlled. Compared with narcissus grown in water, narcissus cultivated in soil is more emerald green in color, more graceful in posture, thicker in fragrance and longer in florescene.
