The Bulbs for Bucks program was the inspiration of board member Chuck Gale, who wanted to beautify Bucks County at key locations with the first splendor of spring.
“I like the idea of planting daffodils because the bulbs multiply each year and the project is long-lasting for future generations to enjoy,” Gale said. “To my knowledge, this is the largest bulb planting project in the state of Pennsylvania.”
The program debuted in 2010 when 40,000 bulbs were planted along the Route 611 Bypass near Doylestown. Additional plantings include along the Delaware Canal State Park towpath, Washington Crossing Historic Park, Buckingham Green Shopping Center, the Michener Art Museum, Fonthill Castle and several parks around Newtown, Sellersville and Perkasie. To date, over 1.6 million daffodil bulbs have been established throughout the county. With the support of the community, Bucks Beautiful hopes to continue to grow the program and surpass 2 million.
