Daffodils are a universal symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. You can help us create a magnificent gateway into downtown St. Charles and demonstrate this to the entire St. Charles community in three ways:

On October 16, 2021 we will be planting 5,000 mixed daffodil bulbs and 150 Virginia blue bell plants to the south of Mr. Eggward to expand this dynamic landmark of exceptional beauty each spring along the Rt. 31 entry point into downtown St. Charles.

Locally owned business supports Project Daffodil ... and you can too

As the Presenting Sponsor, locally owned and operated Heinz Brothers Greenhouse Garden Center has once again generously agreed to insure Project Daffodil builds upon the success of the 2020 inaugural planting. The River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles plans to continue to "grow" this effort over time and plant 5,000 bulbs each year to reach 20,000 bulbs. You can play a vital part in creating this enduring spectacle in three ways. You can choose to be a Sponsor, make an individual donation, or Volunteer to help plant on October 16th. Or, do all of the above.
