Daffodil season is just getting started

Genus: Narcissus

In a few weeks, the arboretum will be absolutely abundant with daffodils – more than anyone could possibly count.  Currently, the first daffodils of the season are popping up and showing off their sunny, yellow colors.  Stay tuned to see many more varieties of daffodils as spring progresses.

Fun Fact: According to the The American Daffodil Society, there are between 40 and 200 different daffodil species, subspecies or varieties of species and over 25,000 registered cultivars (named hybrids) divided among the thirteen divisions of the official classification system.
