"In comparison with the ancient Welsh associations of the leek, the daffodil has only recently assumed a position of national importance. An increasingly popular flower during the 19th century, especially among women, its status was elevated by the Welsh-born prime minister David Lloyd George, who wore it on St David's Day and used it in ceremonies in 1911 to mark the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernarfon." [1]

In the language of flowers, daffodils signify chivalry and/or respect. [2]

When we moved to Wales, WI in 1997, we were given some daffodil bulbs as a welcome present.

Launched in honor of St. David's Day, the National Day in the country of Wales.

Park near the soccer fields at Wales Community Park. Take a stroll up the hill by the fire department, then head for the rock wall at 42 degrees. Approach it from the west side for added stealth. About five feet along the wall, look for a flat red rock with a striped rock on top. Underneath you will find your National Flower of Wales.


Please be stealthy and rehide well - there can be lots of people in this park at times.
