This is THE official collection of the 2014 Gloucester Daffodil Festival! Created in a contest on our Facebook Page by Celeste from VA, this collection is only available for a limited time! 25 each of 3 varieties. The story is below:

The history of the daffodil in Gloucester VA is almost as old as the county itself! When Gloucester was formed in 1651, early settlers brought daffodils from England. Settlers soon discovered the growing conditions were perfect for them and the bulbs were passed from neighbor to neighbor, and began to naturalize freely! The daffodil industry had earned the county the title "Daffodil Capital of America" by the 1930's and '40's thanks to the efforts of the Heath family and others! This collection celebrates the Festival theme of "Love" with two of Brent and Becky's own hybrids and another hybrid carrying the same name as the town in which the first settlers called home! It's a beautiful grouping of yellows and whites in sequential bloom! We hope you enjoy this collection! As these bulbs bloom in your garden next Spring, take a minute to celebrate the state that we call home and that had such an important impact on the history of the daffodil!
