Show results information is presented in the following format:

Comments of Kirby Fong, ADS Awards Committee Chairman

The Fortuna daffodil show was held last weekend in the new River Lodge conference facility in Fortuna, a small town in the northwest of California. The building is situated along the Eel River with great scenic views across the river.

The Fortuna Garden Club and the Heather Society have donated plants and labor to help landscape the facility.

Visitors at Fortuna Show
Show visitors enjoyed strolling through the tables of flowers, collections, and arrangements.

It is a comfortable and spacious place to have a daffodil show.  The space enabled 18 arrangers to show off 57 artistic design entries. The tri-color winner had a couple rectangular black frames, some modern, rectangular containers, and what seemed like a helix of yellow-red daffodils.

In picking the best of show, one of the two final candidates was Ron Scamp's S686, 11aY-O.  This was also the best intermediate in the show.  It lost to Sid DuBose's seedling in a very close vote.

Those of you planning to take the pre-convention tour from San Francisco to Portland next year will get to see the Fortuna show and will be glad you did!

Refreshment table at Fortuna Daffodil show
The Fortuna Garden Club serves refreshments for all visitors to the Daffodil Show.  The home-made treats served with coffee and  punch, makes this one of the friendliest shows in California.
