The 2019 Livermore daffodil show was March 2 & 3 at Alden Lane Nursery. Winter started out mild before turning cold in February, followed by wind and rain. Bloom time and bloom quality were affected, of course, but we had a decent show nonetheless. Fourteen exhibitors made 283 entries with a total of 672 stems. In this post I cover the ADS award-winning exhibits for standard daffodils. Awards not offered or not awarded are omitted in this post. These are listed in the order in which they appear in to show report form.
