This species of daffodil grows wild in mountain meadows from France into Greece.  It has been grown in Britain since Roman times and in this country since the 1600's.  Though various forms were illustrated in seventeenth-century British herbals, the variety recurvus, or old Pheasant’'s Eye, was not known until the early 1800s.  Pheasant's Eye is a late-blooming daffodil that naturalizes well in lawns and meadows.
