Daffodils in Bloom at Gibbs Gardens in Georgia

Daffodils at Gibbs Gardens, Ball Ground, GeorgiaMillions of daffodils are in bloom for the 10th season across 50 acres of hills and valleys at Gibbs Gardens, 1987 Gibbs Drive, Ball Ground, Georgia.

To prepare for the 2021 season, an additional 200,000 new daffodil bulbs and more varieties — now 200 varieties — were planted for the six-week daffodil season, which ends in late April 2021.

Tickets are available only online; none will be sold on site. For more information on this year’s season, go online.

Jim Gibbs, owner, designer, and developer of Gibbs Gardens, began planting daffodils in his gardens in 1987. Every fall Gibbs adds more varieties of daffodils as well as thousands of more bulbs.

“We add more daffodil bulbs each year,” said Gibbs. “We plant more early, mid-season, and late blooming varieties to create a full six weeks of daffodil blossoms in varying sizes and shades of yellow for our visitors. The late bloomers are special for their fragrance. We encourage visitors to come back every two weeks to experience the complete season.”

More than 30,500 additional bulbs in 40 varieties — including tulips, crocus, hyacinth, and wood hyacinth — were planted for even more spring blooms.

The Daffodil Gardens are the centerpiece for hundreds of cherry trees, forsythia, spirea, quince, and thousands of mature dogwoods that begin blossoming during daffodil season.

Gibbs Gardens is one of 25 designated American Daffodil Society Display Gardens in the United States and was recently named one of the top 20 botanical gardens in the U.S.

The Arbor Café is open with daily sandwich choices; the gift store is also open, but the tram will not be running.
