The public is invited to attend as both visitors and exhibitors on Saturday, May 9, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at Maywood Ecology Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.


The show is sponsored by Town and Country Garden Club, Maywood, and the Midwest Daffodil Society. Approved by the American Daffodil Society, the show’s schedule offers classes for single daffodils, for multiples of the same kind of daffodil, and for collections of different daffodils.
