Georgia Daffodil Society Blooms at the Chattahoochee Nature Center
Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 12-5pm  
Kingfisher Hall will bask in the yellow, white and pink glow of hundreds of daffodils as The Georgia Daffodil Society presents its annual show.  Spreading the joy of growing daffodils and educating the public has been at the core of this Society’s mission since its founding in 1954.  Every year sees outstanding blooms from a range of climates with up to 500 on display.  Exhibitors come from Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama. Many exhibitors grow hundreds of varieties, while others grow just a few.  A bloom from a first-time exhibitor is just as likely to be a ribbon winner as one from a veteran.  The GDS encourages newcomers, regardless of age, to enter their blooms. Please contact GDS Show Chair Darrin Ellis-May at darrinsdaffs@gmail.com or Carolyn Hawkins, President of Georgia Daffodil Society for more information. (Included in General Admission).
