Celebrating Daffodils in the American Garden

Friday, April 17
Event Cancelled

Tracing the history of the daffodil from Europe to the US and its popularity in the American garden, this presentation highlights the propagation and preservation of Narcissus. Information culled from nursery trade and seed catalogs combined with modern taxonomies shows the changing use of daffodils in the landscape, reflecting larger gardening trends. A discussion on how current market forces and environmental changes shape daffodil hybridizing and preservation is followed by a viewing of iconic botanical works celebrating spring blooms throughout history.
