A Million Daffodils A Million Daffodils

Lauritzen Gardens has a multi-year goal to add one million daffodils to the garden- to diversify the garden's collection of daffodils (Narcissus sp.), create a blanket of cheery yellow and white blooms, and celebrate the arrival of spring each year. Thanks to our generous community, we have planted 102,000 bulbs in two years and our goal for 2020 is to establish and naturalize an additional 50,000 bulbs between the rose garden and the Founders' Garden. Each $5 contribution will support the planting and care of a daffodil that will be planted this fall and part of a stunning spring display in the spring of 2021.
