Notes:
Goodwin Daffodil Hill was designed to meet two objectives: a show garden to draw visitors to the Arboretum and to provide an educational opportunity to all levels of gardeners to study examples of cultivars in the twelve botanical divisions of Narcissus, which were established by the Royal Horticulture Society. Formally proposed and designed in fall 1996, the garden was planted in fall 1997 with 18,000 bulbs in twelve beds. Within each division bed, there were planted clusters of one or more cultivars of bulbs that were good examples of the division. Examples of the thirteenth division were planted in fall 2002. Elizabeth K. and Frederick M. Goodwin, Jr., of Mission Hills, Kansas, made the living gift of Daffodil Hill in thanksgiving for their sons.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Romaldo Giurgola (architect, 1972); Ehrman B. Mitchell (architect, 1972); Erich Schultz (landscape designer); Elizabeth K. Goodwin (landscape designer); and Mitchell/Giurgola Architects (architects).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, a site plan with daffodil varieties, brochures, and additional descriptive information about the garden.
