April 7&8 2007 Annual Leota (Southern Indiana) Daffodil Show

Chemocurl zn5b/6a Indiana(zone 5/6)March 20, 2007

will be held at the Leota Barn. View the flowers from exhibitors for several states. Show hours are 2:00 to 10;00 on April 7 and 8;00 AM to 10 PM on April 8. The nearby Leota Gardens will be open for viewing. For more information call 812-752-2998.

The above info was in my REMC newsletter. For anyone who really enjoys daffs, this is the place to see a lot of varieties, up close and personal.

For years I admired a daffodil named Rose, which actually smelled like a like a real rose. I finally added it to my collection late last fall.

Others that stood out for me were the many pink (and white) varieties. I have seen it said that there are no true 'pink' daffs, but there are always many very pretty ones that looked pretty pink to me.

I believe Leota Gardens is the name given to the residence of Helen Trueblood...The organizer of the Daffodil Show and President of the Southern Indiana Daffodil Growers Society.

Leota is a small community...actually a small crossroads in the country. There is a new covered bridge where the 2 roads cross. The Show is held in 'the Community Building' (barn)...within about 200 ft of the bridge.

Helen lives across the road, and about 4 years ago, she told me she had 1500+ varieties of daffodils growing then.

If time allows, she might accompany one on a tour of her gardens, (or a part on them) and I am always filled with questions about the many things she has growing. She once grabbed a spade and shared divisions of a sedum, and celendine poppy with me and a friend.

She is 87 years old, and truly one of the most interesting and amazing folks I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Yes...fairly close to Louisville. Scottsburg (exit 29) is 29 miles north of Louisville, and then it is about 10 minutes to Leota after exiting the Interstate at Scottsburg.

just 3 more days, so I thought I'd bring this back to the top here.

Is anyone planning on attending? Exhibiting?
