History of 'Door County USA'
Narcissus 'Door County USA' was first christened in Holland on April 25, 2002 and locally at the Door County Visitor Bureau Welcome Center in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin on May 14, 2004, by Karen Raymore (DCVB CEO from 1997-2007).
Between 2003 and 2009, 26,100 Narcissus 'Door County USA' bulbs were sold to the public by the Door County Visitor Bureau to enhance Door County's Season of Blossoms each spring.**
Affectionately, the beautiful double blooms are referred to locally as the Doorfodil.

** Bulbs were supplied by Holland Beauty Flower & Bulb Corp., which was instrumental in the process.
