The Daffodil Meadow of Vlăhiţa
Daffodils Glade from Vlăhiţa, Lueta, Romania
Poiana Narciselor is located in the Southern area of Vlăhiţa/Szentegyháza, near Pokol-láz, a protected area of approximately 20 hectares, one of the largest daffodil meadows in Romania, where 180-200 daffodils (Narcissus stellaris) could grow on a square meter. "Laz" in the local dialect means field and is the geological form typical of the volcanic plateau in the Harghita mountains.
The daffodil is a protected plant, the most spectacular of this area, which is easy to recognize due to its star-shaped flower. It blooms from the end of April until the beginning of May. Apart from daffodils, we can also find other rare plant species such as Lady's-slipper orchid (Cypripedium calceolus), Siberian Iris (Iris sibirica) and globeflower (Trollius europaeus).
Every year since 1976, the Daffodil Festival has been held next to the meadow.
