Photo Contest – A Buchholz Beauty Pageant

April came and went. May and June zoomed by. Tomorrow is the 4th of July. Hurray America!

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.

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.

Contest closes at 4pm, Wednesday, July 8th, and the winner will be announced on Thursday, July 9th.

Good Luck.

  1. Talon - You are a sneaky bastard. You have made every maple-holic that reads this blog drool - lol. 'Frosted Purple', 'Blonde Beauty', 'Dark Knight', 'Strawberry Spring' must be new cultivars. So we maple people must wonder when can I get my hands on one of these listed or maybe two of these listed, ah heck - I want them all.
