A handful of narcissus are grown largely for their scent. Chinese Sacred Lilies are part of that elite group with a sweet, clear fragrance that hasn't the tiniest hint of muskiness. Put the scented candles away and cut a few stems to savor the essence of spring.
This narcissus traveled from Asia with Chinese immigrants that came here seeking relief from war and famine at home, hardy souls responding to tales of Gold Rush opportunities. These flowers were an important part of the immigrants' New Year's celebration, both as gifts and for the blossoms' perfume.
