ohio_clevelandbg_daffodilThere’s nothing that shouts SPRING more than daffodils! More than 60 different varieties will be on display in profusion during the Spring Daffodil Show April 24 and 25, 2010, in the Cleveland Botanical Garden, 11030 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio.

According to the American Daffodil Society and a bunch of botanists, there are between 40 and 200 naturally occurring daffodil species, subspecies or varieties of species — and more than 25,000 registered cultivars (cultivated varieties) in the 13 divisions of the classification system.

“Daffodil” is the common name of the species of plants known botanically as Narcissus. Daffodils are separated into 13 show categories (called “divisions”) established by the American Daffodil Society. Of these divisions, at least 10 will be represented at the Garden’s Spring Daffodil Show. Colors range from the familiar golden and pastel yellows to white, pink, apricot and even bi-colored combinations. Flower forms are equally diverse, with dainty miniatures, ruffled varieties that resemble little peonies, or back-swept petals like those of a cyclamen. Some have long, slender trumpets while others have flattened disk-like centers. Sweet fragrance is another common attribute.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 24, and noon to 5 p.m. April 25. The show is free with garden admission ($7.50 for adults). Road Trips Gardeners should try to get there at 1 p.m. one of those two days for a special Garden tour highlighting the many different spring-flowering bulbs in bloom in the outdoor gardens.
