Narcissus flowers are usually white or yellow and are characterized by a stem that bends just before the blossom, so it tilts in such a way that the blossom faces out or down rather than up. According to myth, this is because Narcissus was gazing down when he was transfixed in his own reflection. The stalk is otherwise firm and upright. .
