Voting is now open for this year's North American flower-popularity contest! Six beauties will vie for this year's title of Favorite Flower!
Here's how it works. You can either vote in person at one of the twenty-eight participating public gardens throughout the Unites States or you can vote online at www.americangardenaward.com.
If you're voting in person, you have the option of either texting in your vote as instructed on the signs posted in the gardens or you use a postage-paid postcard provided by these gardens.
Pictured here is one of the entrants, Gazania 'Big Kiss™ White Flame', which is quite a stunner in my opinion!
Voting will remain open until August 31st and the top three vote-getters will be announced this fall. In the meantime, any or all of these flowers are available from preferred retailers.
The award is a unique opportunity for the gardening public to vote on a specific flower that they think has the most appealing garden characteristics.
So, be sure to cast your vote in person or online before the August 31st deadline!
