Imagine the beauty of Gibbs Gardens’ daffodils in your yard next spring
Jim Gibbs presents daffodil collections designed to thrive in your home garden
“The most spectacular display of blooms this side of Holland”
W. Lindsay Bierman, editor, Southern Living
Gibbs Gardens Seasons of Color begin each year when “. . . hillsides drip with silver and gold … as sweeps of well over 5 million daffodils in 60 different selections bejewel 50 acres. . . .” (“Here Comes the Sun,” Southern Living, Feb. 2012).
Almost 30 years ago Jim Gibbs set out to create his daffodil gardens by planting hardy daffodil bulbs. Anyone who has ever visited Gibbs Gardens knows that Jim dreams big. He wanted his daffodil gardens to be special -- not just large; he wanted to create a spectacular, one-of-a-kind daffodil garden using more than 60 daffodil varieties.
He picked bulbs for their bloom cycle – from early/early, early and mid to late – to ensure his daffodil gardens are bursting with blooms throughout the six-week+ season from March 1 through April 15.
He carefully selected varieties for unique characteristics: color, fragrance, time of bloom and hardiness. And, just as an expert wine master selects grapes based on their terroir, Jim chose daffodil varieties that would naturalize in the geography, geology and climate of the Southeast. These more hardy bulbs divide each season to produce twice as many blossoms the next year.
Over the years, Jim planted more than 3 million daffodil bulbs that have divided year after year to create an estimated 16 to 20 million daffodil blossoms each spring, providing fields of gold that begin blooming in winter and peak from March 1 through April 15.
Now, you too can create your own magnificent daffodil garden with the same varieties Jim Gibbs selected for his stunning daffodil display at Gibbs Gardens. These varieties were specifically developed to naturalize in your garden and to provide color. Order today to ensure you receive your daffodil bulbs for fall planting.
