Sara L. Van Beck, author of Daffodils in American Gardens, 1733-1940, visits Bartram’s Garden to tell the fascinating story of the genus Narcissus and its journey from the Mediterranean basin to the gardens of historic Philadelphia. The talk will be followed by a Bartram’s Bitters cocktail reception and book-signing along with curator’s tours of the Bartram’s daffodil collection—living relics of bulbs brought to Bartram’s Garden centuries ago, blooming in the same place year after year.
