Name that plant contest
Welcome to the “Name That Plant Contest” sponsored by the Georgia Botanical Society
The person who is first, each month, to get all plants correct will receive either a patch or window decal. The person with the most correct answers for the year will win a prize, which may include, but is not limited to, a window decal, patch, a free one-year Georgia Botanical Society Membership, or other prize.
- Only one guess per person will be allowed.
- Only scientific names will be accepted (no common names).
- Older synonyms will be accepted.
This month we are, once again, featuring plants that are in the same genus. These really showy beauties should be easily recognizable to genus level and should be easy to species as well. Plant # 1 is found in the Coastal Plain in Georgia, plant # 2 is mainly in the north Ga. mountains and Piedmont, and # 3 is rare in extreme northwest Ga. Someone asked if you can use books to obtain your answers, yes you can use books, the internet, etc., just please keep this an individual contest, no sharing of answers. Remember, only scientific names will be accepted, no common names. Good luck on your guesses and hope you enjoy this month’s plants!
You must have your answers in by midnight, July 31.
Send your guesses to Richard Ware at: firstname.lastname@example.org
