Many people admire the daffodils
Florida Daffodil Society shows off some of the astonishing blooms for late winter, early springMarch 05, 2014
By: Qunay Marshall
The 2014 Florida Daffodil Society Annual Display Show was in full bloom Saturday, proudly showing off flowers in its 20th anniversary,
For those interested, its annual meeting will be held April 12 at Goodwood Museum and Gardens.
The FDS provides over 2,000 bulbs annually for plantings in public gardens in Florida, Alabama and Georgia, and holds its annual Daffodil Show in Tallahassee the first weekend in March.
FDS offered information about the growing and caring for daffodils. The display was held in the Tallahassee Nurseries, which is located at 2911 N. Thomasville Road.
Linda Van Beck, president of the FDS, was pleased with the daffodil display, especially since it’s the FDS’s anniversary.
“The main thing is we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary,” Van Beck said. “Our first daffodil show was on the corner in front of the opera house in Monticello. So it isn’t the 20th annual here [Tallahassee Nurseries], but it’s 20 years of education.”
FDS is committed to the preservation of species, wild hybrids and early historic daffodils planted by settlers in the Live Oak-Spanish Moss belt.
According to the FDS, daffodils will face the direction of predominant sunshine, usually south or southwest. December-February bloomers need full sun while other daffodils do well on half-day sun with afternoon shade. Shade from deciduous trees is always welcome.
Carol Allen, chairperson of the FDS, was proud of the display as well and hoped for a festive crowd of flower lovers.
