For the fourth consecutive year Villa La Pescigola is hosting the largest daffodil flowering in an Italian garden.
Over 200,000 daffodils of 400 different varieties will welcome all visitors. The varieties include numerous historical daffodils, others of the highly scented “poeticus” group while others represent the most recent hybrids with hues of rose, coral and salmon dispersed in colorful waves bordering the fields or in wonderful “broderies” on the terraces of the Italian garden. The former 17th century maze which was lost during the 19th century today is evoked by the flowering daffodils edged in boxwood with geometric designs.Wishing to recreate a contemporary “rite of Spring” the current owners chose the daffodil, a humble and ancient flower, dear to the Gods, with a wonderful range of warm mediterranean colors: golden yellow, hints of coral and orange, the candid white of April clouds and the faded pink reflecting the rain washed walls of the old Tuscan villa.Lovers of Spring flowers will find beds of tulips and iris dispersed along the walk with fountains and waterways.For the little ones there will be numerous Easter egg hunts over the holidays and a refreshment stand where picnic baskets for 4 people, food and organic farm products grown on the land can be purchased. Flower enthusiasts may find a variety of flowers and plants plus order locally produced bulbs for October delivery.
