Beginning in March and continuing to mid-April, over 20 million daffodils (all belong to the genus Narcissus) bloom at Gibbs Gardens. There are over 100 varieties including early, mid and late blooming selections. Some of the earliest bloomers include N. ‘February Gold’ and N. ‘Ice Follies,’ two old fashioned favorites. Spring blooming shrubs like flowering quince, forsythia, spiraea and the unusual Chinese rice paper plant, with fragrant flowers, provide additional color. Later in the month look for flowering cherries and early dogwood blossoms.
