Fortuna is a town near the California coast about a five hour drive north of San Francisco. The daffodil show on March 23 & 24 was sponsored by the Fortuna Garden Club. The show this year had 23 exhibitors putting in 360 exhibits with a total of 747 stems. In this post, we show the ADS awards won by standard size daffodils. If an award is not mentioned, it means the award was not given, generally due to lack of entries. So here they are in show report order.

"Tuggle Award Winner"

“Tuggle Award Winner”

The Tuggle Award is offered only at regional daffodil shows, and the Fortuna show was a local, not a regional, show; therefore, there can’t actually be a Tuggle Award winner at this show. That’s why the caption is in quotes. Bob Spotts had so many flowers that he put in an exhibit that would otherwise be eligible for the Tuggle Award.  The Tuggle class calls for 3 stems each of 12 different standards from at least 3 RHS Divisions. Flowers in the winning exhibit are:
Top row: ‘Chromacolor’ 2W-P, ‘Anasazi’ 3WWG-GWW, ‘Mesa Verde’ 12G-GGY, ‘Southern Hospitality’ 4Y-R;
Middle row: ‘Storyteller’ 8Y-O, ‘Willie Mae’ 8Y-O, ‘Chile Verde’ 3Y-GYO, 8-31-19 7W-P;
Bottom row: ‘Kokopelli’ 7Y-Y, ‘Louise Randall’ 2W-W, ‘Classic Delight’ 2YYW-GOO, ‘Ice Wings’ 5W-W.

And that takes care of standard daffodils winning ADS awards at the Fortuna show. The miniature award winners will be in another posting.
