Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)
Amaryllidaceae or Amaryllis Family

Large, showy yellow flowers consisting of 6 petal-like sepals behind a cup formed of fused petals.  Leaves long, grass-like.

An exotic, often planted for ornament in yards.  In Wildwood, planted at the entranceway, under the sign, but also escaped into the park in occasional patches in moist areas.

In bloom, it is very distinctive.  Easily overlooked after the flowers are gone. The related poet's narcissus also escapes into the Park; it has a shorter trumpet, orange on a white frill.
