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.
For the month of March we are, once again, featuring three plants that are in the same genus. As if the month’s selections weren’t easy enough, I will also divulge that plants # 1 and 2 are trees, while plant # 3 is a large shrub. Plant # 1 is scattered across extreme north Ga., mostly in the mountains; # 2 is reported from only Walker, but is in Gwinnett and possibly Paulding; # 3 is only in two counties in extreme southwest 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, March 31.
Send your guesses to Richard Ware at: email@example.com
