Posted on: March 24, 2018 | Written By: Everybody Gardens | Comments

Daffodils are often called the sign that spring has arrived, and if you need any reminders, make sure to check out the 2018 Pittsburgh Annual Daffodil Show.

The event, presented by the Daffodil and Hosta Society of Western Pennsylvania, is set for 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 28 at the Shady Side Academy Senior School Ice Rink.

The free event is open to the public to visit as well as exhibit. It’s recommended exhibitors to enter their cut daffodils from 4 to 10 p.m. Friday or from 6 to 7:45 a.m. Saturday. (Email Stephen Plato at if you have questions.)

Daffodil Show

Experienced exhibitors and novices can enter daffodils to vie for many local and national awards.

Some potted daffodils and hostas will be available to purchase.

To get prepared for the show, the group will hold a daffodil grooming clinic at 1 p.m. April 14 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 311 Cumberland Road, Pittsburgh 15237. They’ll teach you how to groom and stage your daffodils. They recommend bringing address labels for use on entry cards as well as some daffodils so you can practice.

The group’s next event will be its Hosta Show on June 2 at Soergel Orchards in Wexford.
