It is the cup-shaped or trumpet-shaped outgrowth at the center of a daffodil or narcissus flower.
And its origin, in mid 16th century from Latin, is ‘wreath, crown’.

“The federal government has taken all measures required for this to be operational,” said Stewart. “Now we’re just waiting for the provincial guidelines.” (1)
