Narcissus ‘Thalia’ (Daffodil) Entry & Show Gardens; One of a few daffodils which opens pure white, Thalia is a great perennializer and is an heirloom from 1916. 

Narcissus ‘Mount Hood’ (Trumpet Daffodil) Entry Garden; An heirloom daffodil with white petals and a creamy trumpet maturing to brilliant white – another great perennializer!

Narcissus ‘Fortune’ (Large-Cupped Daffodil) Bright golden yellow pedals surround an orange-yellow cup, look for Fortune in our Entry Garden.

Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’ (Large- Cupped Daffodil) Entry Garden; Large-cupped daffodils are extremely popular featuring a cup (corona) that is generally more than 1/3, but less than the total length of the petals.

Tulipa greigii ‘Casa Grande’ (Greigii Tulip) Demonstration Courtyard; This short-stemmed tulip has foliage with distinctive purple-brown markings making it interesting even without the vivid red flowers.

Leucojum aestivum ‘Gravetye Giant’ (Summer Snowflake) Demonstration Courtyard; A selection of ssp. aestivum, Gravetye Giant not only has more robust flowers but more in number as well!  These European wild flowers are extremely frost hardy and have been in cultivation since the 1500s.
