14th Annual Mother Lode Show at Ironstone Vineyard, Murphys
2009 Annual Mother Daffodil Show Lode Results
March 2122, 2009
Show results information are presented in the following format: the identification of the award; the name of the cultivar(s) and possibly the division (a number from 1 thru 13) followed by the color of the petals, a dash, and the color of the cup;and the name of the exhibitor.
Some of the daffodils have multiple colored petals and cups, so you will see more than one color identified between the dashes. For more information about the classification of daffodils see Classification Definitions.
