While walking on the beach recently, I was able to get some pictures of this rare flowering plant. Little is known about the "Narcissus litoralis", but every spring, it is spotted along the ocean beaches of many of the Mid-Atlantic states. It seldom grows above the high tide line, and only blooms for a very brief period of time each year. If you happen to find one of the bulbs while playing on the beach this summer, do not bring it home - it will not survive in your garden. It is requires an extremely salty environment in order to grow and blossom.
