20,000 daffodils were planted in Downtown’s Woodruff Park last November and they are now coming into bloom just in time for the Daffodil Celebration on March 12 at noon.

The Daffodil Project plans to build a Living Holocaust Memorial by planting 1.5 million daffodils around the world to remember and represent the one and a half million children who died senselessly in Nazi occupied Europe. The vision for this project in Downtown Atlanta includes the possibility of planting daffodils along the route of the streetcar, lining the path from the National Center for Civil and Human Rights to the King Center. The daffodils planted around the children’s playground in Woodruff Park is the kick off for the project.
