Gibbs Gardens Daffodil Display

February 18- April 15. Gibbs Gardens Daffodil Gardens is is the largest daffodil display in the country, with more than 20 million daffodil blossoms covering 50 acres of hillsides and valley. Did you think daffodils only come in yellow? There are 60 varieties with colors ranging from primrose-yellow, yellow, gold, saffron, orange, shades of yellow and orange, to blush pinks, creamy whites and white.

There’s more to see in this brilliant spring display, with forsythia and spirea plantings and cherry and flowering dogwood trees.

There are also more than a thousand azaleas, including hundreds of fragrant early-, mid- and late-blooming  native azaleas. During June, ancient Viscosum (Swamp Azalea) are in bloom.

Gibbs Gardens is a pleasure garden created by the Atlanta area landscape designer Jim Gibbs, founder of Gibbs Landscape Co., one of the largest landscaping firms in Atlanta.
