While the tulips are our most famous blooms, there’s nothing quite as wonderful as entire fields of bright, cheery daffodils against our Mt. Baker backdrop. In these trying times, we all can use a bright field of daffodils to brighten up our spring! Follow us for the most current updates of the 7th Annual La Conner Daffodil Festival as we welcome the Golden Trumpets of Spring!
La Conner Daffodil Festival Fun Facts
- According to Brent Roozen, owner of RoozenGaarde and the Washington Bulb Company, RoozenGaarde grows more than 450 acres of daffodils, compared to 350 acres of tulips.
- The three major varieties planted are Dutch Master, Flower Carpet, and Standard Value – Dutch Master is the world’s most popular daffodil.
- Fields of daffodils are left intact through the bloom cycle and beyond, unlike tulips which are ‘topped’ toward the end of their bloom cycle.
- Daffodil crops are only rotated every three years, versus an every-year rotation for tulips – fields that are three years old this year will be a solid wash of bright yellow.
Self-Guided Tours Through the Beautiful Fields
Check out the Bloom Map and plan your route! The daffodil fields will turn from grey to yellow when in bloom.
Roozengaarde’s display garden is open now, visit the classic gardens at no charge through Thursday, March 25. (Fees will March 26 on).
