The RHS Lindley Library presents an upcoming (online) talk featuring Charlotte Brooks RHS Art Curator and Botanical Art Judging Panel Secretary, exploring the enduring popularity of the daffodil and the beautiful artworks it has inspired, which now reside in the Lindley Library Collections.
The cultivation of Narcissus (daffodils) became popular in the late 19th century and the RHS Lindley Library holds a range of illustrations - including many of the most sought-after varieties. Charlotte will explore some of the gems in the collection.
