The first of the Northern California Daffodil Society’s two shows for 2009 was held in Livermore, California March 7 and 8 at Alden Lane Nursery. NCDS is grateful for the support of nursery owner Jacquie Courtright for letting us hold our daffodil show at her nursery at no charge. I haven’t heard about other local daffodil shows in the U.S., but the Livermore show may be the first to offer the new ADS awards for the collection of 24 miniatures and for the 3, 6, and 12 miniature cultivars by the hybridizer. We actually had entries in all four of these classes including two entries in the collection of 24 miniatures. Although there was an entry, the ribbon for 6 by hybridizer was not awarded. Of note was the large number of miniatures in the show with 70 entries encompassing 254 stems. Credit for most of the miniatures goes to Harold Koopowitz, Marilynn Howe, and Jon Kawaguchi.
Here is a report of the show without verification of spelling or color codes. In the collections, the daffodils are listed going from left to right in the exhibit. If there are multiple rows, the it will be top or back row, then middle row, and bottom or front row. I will post some photos later and don’t want to have to type all the names again, so refer back to this posting for the flowers in the collections. I filled in the show report on Saturday but didn’t have time to photograph the exhibits until Sunday afternoon. I suspect some of the collections got rearranged over night, so don’t be dismayed if some of the collection pictures don’t look like they match the names listed below.
Number of entries: 365 Number of exhibitors: 19 Number of stems: 973
