Sun Guangxian was an important lyricist of the Huan School of the late Tang and Five Dynasties. At that time, he served in Jiangling, which was under the jurisdiction of the Gaoping Xingnanping State. Jiangling was equivalent to Jingzhou in Hubei. Therefore, it is almost certain that the Chinese narcissus was indeed introduced by foreign countries. At the end of the Tang Dynasty in the fifth or earlier period, the first place may be in the Jingzhou area of Hubei. The image of Qu Yuan’s bank and the Greek legend of Narcissus, a water-side narcissistic god, is quite similar. At that time, the immigrants of the narcissus came to the country to follow the custom, and the narcissus was the hometown of Chu. The local name of Qu Yuan is used to replace this Western name. This should be the source of the Chinese name of Narcissus.
