Daffodil Weekend

April 29 & 30, 2023

11 a.m.–3 p.m. | At the Garden

As part of our Spectacular Spring Weekends, join us on Daffodil Hill to explore the living collections and participate in seasonal activities, demonstrations, and fun arts and crafts inspired by the vibrant yellow blooms.

With spring’s bloom playing out on a rapid schedule this year, and sudden warm weather bumping up the flowering of several of our collections by as much as two weeks, hear from Todd Forrest, Arthur Ross Vice President for Horticulture and Living Collections, as he discusses the surprises of 2023’s season of renewal. As the season continues to progress, we’ll be pointing visitors to the best seasonal spectacles on each weekend.
