For the 'Sneak Peek from the Stacks' this month, the Archives of American Gardens brings to you a field of Narcissus Poeticus, or the Poet's Daffodil, in a lantern slide from the J. Horace McFarland Collection. The exact whereabouts of this landscape are unknown. According to the USDA Plant database, fields of Narcissus Poeticus grow throughout the United States: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=NAPO. If by chance you recognize it, please take a moment to tag the record with the location!
