Wild daffodils 25th March 2019


Everyone knows about the ones in Farndale, but they are widespread especially along river banks in the North York Moors. The exact origin is uncertain, but they may have been introduced as a medicinal herb by the Romans and helped to spread by monks from (e.g.) Rievaulx. Now thoroughly naturalized they readily colonize new areas by seed and water transporting bulbs. The plant is unpalatable to livestock - they may nibble them but won't eat much now that grass is growing away.
