Welcome to 'the most stunning daffodil garden ever!'
"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
Goodbye winter. Hello sunshine! Chase away those lingering winter doldrums at Gibbs Gardens’ 2014 Daffodil Festival, beginning March 1 and running through April 15. Join your friends at Gibbs Gardens to view "the most spectacular display of daffodils this side of Holland".
Gibbs Gardens is the best place to be as winter fades and spring bursts forth. There is absolutely nothing that compares to the singular beauty of 20 million daffodil blossoms—flowing in waves of sunbeam colors—across 50 acres of hills, woodlands and valley.
Stroll along paths meandering through fields of fragrant daffodils. Surround yourself with more than 60 varieties of daffodils in colors ranging from primrose-yellow to yellow, saffron, gold, orange, shades of yellow and orange, and blush pinks, creamy whites and white.
And then my heart with pleasure fills
And dances with the daffodils."
.. William Wordsworth
The Daffodil Festival runs for a full six weeks as more than 60 varieties of spectacular daffodils take center stage at the Gardens. There are actually three two-week mini-daffodil seasons at Gibbs Gardens as early, mid and late blooming varieties take their turn in the spotlight. Come every two weeks to see the beauty and unique characteristics of the early, mid and late blooming blossoms. Don’t miss the gentle scents of late blooming fragrant daffodils planted along paths and borders.
Refresh your sense of wonder amidst nature’s own spring bouquet: daffodils, forsythia, quince and spirea canopied by hundreds of blossoming white dogwood and flowering cherry trees. Simply put, Gibbs Gardens stands alone as an unforgettable garden experience.
Each of our collections contains varieties of early, mid and late blooming daffodils that will provide you with 6 to 8 weeks of cut flowers for your home. For easy shopping, the daffodil collections will be on display in the Gardens. Stop by the blue tent (near the Arbor Café) to see the daffodil varieties in the collections then place your order NOW from our limited supply. Bulbs will be shipped directly to your home in October for planting in November. The best high quality daffodil bulbs are ordered in the spring and planted in the fall.
For your convenience, Gibbs Gardens will be open 6 days a week from March 1 thru June 15 during the largest, most spectacular Daffodil Festival in the country. Come and be dazzled by our "fields of gold and silver."
Don’t miss a minute of this memorable new spring tradition. Plan your trip to the Daffodil Festival today —but first make sure you’ve renewed your membership for 2014.
Because, as a 4-Season Member, we appreciate your loyalty and continued support we created a special “Refer a friend!” offer for you. This is a great way to earn more free guest passes and share this new spring tradition with friends and family members. They will thank you for introducing them to the unforgettable experience of viewing millions of daffodils in bloom throughout the Gardens.
Bring a different friend with you during the many times you visit our Daffodil Festival. Before you leave, encourage them to use the credit from their ticket purchase to buy a 4-Season Membership. If they do, you both win! Your friend receives full credit from that day's ticket purchase toward a membership (a $50 value for only $30). For helping us sign up a new member, you receive credit on your account for a free one-day guest pass.
You must be present when your friends purchase their 4-Season Membership in order to receive your free guest passes. You will NOT receive a hard copy guest pass in the mail. Your guest pass(es) will be electronically credited to your membership account and can be verified when you visit the Gardens' Welcome Center. This offer expires on April 13, 2014. The more friends you sign up, the more free guest passes you accumulate for the 2014 season. There is no limit!
Remember, if an individual makes more than two visits to the Gardens during 2014, a membership pays for itself on the third visit. The $50 cost of a 4-Season Membership is less than the cost of either three general or senior admissions.
Gibbs Gardens offers one membership level and one price—$50—for a full year to all our valued members. Everyone receives the same benefits and opportunities. Members receive email newsletters alerting them to upcoming activities, events and news about the Gardens.
And, unlike some other metro venues that charge up to $15 a day for parking, there is never a charge for parking at Gibbs Gardens—no matter how many times you visit the Gardens. For your comfort, we offer ample parking spaces and reserved handicapped parking just steps from the entrance.
In response to your feedback, in 2013 we introduced our garden blog, added labeling to more than 100 plantings in the Gardens, expanded our music program and added several events—from cooking demonstrations and plant sales to a 32-piece band. We introduced our first Japanese Maples Festival and celebrated two weekends of Japanese arts and culture. Don’t miss out on 2014: A spectacular Japanese Maples Festival, music weekends, 17 bloom festivals...and more surprises!
On behalf of the Gibbs Gardens family, I want to thank all our members and guests for their support and enthusiasm during our third year as a public garden. It is a joy to greet you in the Welcome Center or along one of the garden paths, to answer your questions and hear your comments.
Don’t forget: Gibbs Gardens blooms for you,
