  • City shares daffodil map to guide visitors to best viewing areas

As part of Mayor Duggan’s mission to create a City of Beauty, 2 million daffodil bulbs have now been planted, in partnership with Daffodils for Detroit. With another 500,000 bulbs set to be planted by our city’s floriculture team this Fall, Detroit is inviting visitors and residents alike to take in these beautiful blooms. The flowers are springing to life now and peak viewing will be in the next two weeks. We have created a map to help residents and tourists alike find these awesome clusters of color along beautiful boulevards, city streets, and parks.
