The American Daffodil Society (ADS) was founded in 1954 to promote wider interest in daffodils; to encourage scientific research and education on daffodil culture, breeding, diseases, pests, exhibiting, and testing; to encourage, coordinate, and sponsor shows and exhibitions of daffodils; to record and disseminate horticultural information about daffodils and issue publications for such purpose; and to register daffodil varieties and standardize their names in cooperation with international authorities.
The ADS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, educational, charitable organization supported by memberships. The ADS has members in 47 states and in a variety of countries including, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Holland, Germany, Hungary, Argentina, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Norway, Poland, South Korea, and Sweden.
The ADS maintains an Internet-based daffodil database/query system, DaffSeek.org and publishes several books that list and describe registered daffodil cultivars, including Daffodils to Show and Grow, which is updated approximately every four years.
The ADS publishes quarterly The Daffodil Journal, an 80-page color magazine that covers all aspects of daffodil culture, breeding, and exhibition.
The ADS cooperates with The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) by accepting and forwarding registrations for new daffodil cultivars from American registrants.
