On Wednesday, March 27th, Merle Reuser and drove to Volcano, CA to see the Daffodil Hill that I heard of for many years. We packed Cedric into my SUV and drove about four hours up I80 to 50 to Folsom Road to 49 to Volcano if I have this straight. Volcano is a tiny and charming one street town with a hotel called the St. George and some gold rush era facades, oh, and a post office!
Cedric was thrilled to be out of the car for an extended time and enjoyed the walk around about four acres of grounds and daffodils. Children love to pet him and he loves them too.
There were many varieties that I grow planted in swathes and Ice Follies and Scarlet O’Hara were prevalent as were Dutch Master and Mt. Hood. Also, there were some I have found too fancy for landscaping, but that is really a matter of taste. Some were new to me but similar to ones I know like the one below which look like a pure white variety called Cheerfulness although this one has a yellow center.
This one is a pink variety, but I don’t recognize it and haven’t grown it.
I didn’t see any of the newer daffodils that do naturalize like Trevithian, Golden Dawn, Thalia or Erlicheer nor any Tazetta Narcissi. Overall it was a terrific sight!
