As the days of winter drag on, we long for more sunlight to nudge the first blooms of spring. Join us to see an abundance of these early bloomers at the Garden Club of Virginia’s 89th Daffodil Day, which carries the theme “Here Comes the Sun.”

As one of the nation’s largest daffodil shows, an estimated 2,000 daffodil specimens will be featured, along with 40 floral arrangements and an eye-catching photography show. The horticulture show will be judged by American Daffodil Society judges, and the artistic design and photography shows will be judged by Garden Club of Virginia judges.

Daffodils will be showcased in a wide variety of “sunny” floral arrangements that interpret “The Sun King” in the Early French Baroque style; “The Sun Also Rises” in the Phoenix style, and “Keep Your Sunny Side Up” in the Casual Contemporary style, and more. 

PLEASE NOTE: All Artistic Design Classes are full.

Online horticulture registration is closed. Entries may be made at the show, noon-5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, and 7-10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
