The newly formed, combined LA MISS Daffodil Society is hosting their first ever flower show and educational event in historic Washington, LA, on March 4. The American Daffodil Society is 55 years old and is pleased to finally have a presence in LA. It is a myth that we can’t grow daffodils this far south.
The event begins at 9 AM. Bring cut flower stems of any and all types of daffodils. Our term “daffodil” includes the flowers known as Narcissus, jonquils, sweeties, Texas Stars, and other common names. We will identify them, help you enter them in the informal show, explain their merits, and you might win ribbons for your efforts! Nationally recognized authority Dr. Ted Snazelle will present information learned from a lifetime of growing and showing daffodils. A display of daffodil books, brooches, and the lovely flowers will infect you with a raging case of yellow fever! All containers and show materials will be furnished. Just bring flowers, no matter how common.
WHERE: Washington, LA, exit 25 off I 49. The property is owned by the Washington Garden Club. The historic 1870s church was the site of a movie scene starring Mathew McConnaughey in 2015. The adjacent rectory is the show location. Exit 25, turn left towards Washington for 300 yards, turn left after the historic art gallery and the the WGC property is on the left in a few hundred feet. The Old Schoolhouse Antique Mall is nearby.
Thanks to the Washington Garden Club for allowing the use of their facilities. No charge = free. You may come and go, but we will begin at 9 and continue to 2 or 3.
