Origin of Name

Daffodil named for the fertility god of the Anasazi. It was believed that Kokopelli would descend in the night and, playing his flute and walk the corn fields causing the crops to germinate. Anasazi were the ancient (800-1200AD) cliff-dwellers in the Southwest part of the United States.
