"Great Daffodils like 'Beersheba, 'Lucifer, or 'White Lady... are his floral legacy."
April 25, 1851
On this day, Daffodil breeder Reverend George Herbert Engleheart was born.
George's work with Daffodils was prolific and he produced over 700 varieties in his lifetime.
Fans of great Daffodils like ‘Beersheba,’ ‘Lucifer,’ or ‘White Lady,’ owe a debt of gratitude to Reverend Engleheart. These Daffodils and many others are his floral legacy.
George spent every spare minute breeding dafs, and his parishioners would often find a note tacked to the church door saying,
“No service today, working with daffodils.”
