Photo Contest - A Buchholz Beauty Pageant

We endured a long and costly winter, but sailed into spring, and here we are now nearly to the end of May...er, wait a minute! July 4th is next week. We're halfway to Christmas already.

It must be time for our biannual photo contest. I have gathered my favorite plant images from the past six months and you can choose one, only one, that you consider the best. The winner will be selected from the image with the largest popularity, and one of you will be chosen at random to receive the prize.

June 2013 contest winner



You could win a 16" by 24" print, mounted beautifully on a bamboo board, totally ready for hanging. You may cast your vote at info (at) buchholznursery (dot) com, not as a comment on this blog. If you do not win, you can order your favorite at $269, or for that matter, any photo from our entire website. I have a number of them in the office and at home, and they really pop off from the walls.

  2. Your pic labeled Stokesia laevis is actually Centaurea montana.

  3. I know contest is over now and I'll not get any kind of award even though "Pinus thunbergii" is my most favourite one. It looks like a man running in the form of tree.
