Rich in history and prominent in Gloucester’s culture, daffodils have been around almost as long as Gloucester County itself. Look around Warner Hall’s estate next time you are here in the spring. You’ll see these sweet blooms popping out all over the Virginia plantation.
When Gloucester County was formed in 1651, the early settlers had brought with them daffodils—their “soft reminders of English springs”—and the spreading commenced.
The bulbs were strewn through the fields of Gloucester, being passed along from neighbor to neighbor. By the 20th century, daffodils were growing wild, even in the unattended fields. Some even thrived on neglect.
Though daffodils have had such a longstanding history in Gloucester, affecting economic, historical and cultural components of the area, much of the daffodil history is often looked over.
Here are 10 things you may not know about the daffodil influence on Gloucester County:
