Abstract : Galanthamine, an alkaloid present in the Amaryllidaceae is currently undergoing clinical trials for the treatment of Alzheimer's. Common daffodils, Narcissus spp., contain galanthamine and other alkaloids. Four commercial Narcissus cultivars were evaluated as potential sources of galanthamine. Planting depths, planting densities, bulb size or flower bud removal did not affect galanthamine content
