Contestants Announced for 2012

North America’s only flower-popularity contest, as voted on by consumers, is back for a fourth year!

This year, there are six contestants ready to flaunt their stuff in twenty-eight participating public gardens throughout the United States.

All gardens will wait until their local safe-planting date to install the entries and make them available for viewing by garden visitors, who can then vote for their favorite.


The six BEAUTIFUL entries are:

Angelonia angustfolia ‘Serena Blue’         Begonia Boliviensis ‘Santa Cruz Sunset’
by PanAmerican Seed                               by Ernst Benary of America


Gazania ‘Big Kiss™ White Flame’             Petchoa x Hybrida ‘SuperCal Pink Ice PPAF’
By Syngenta Flowers                               By Sakata Ornamentals


Petunia ‘Surfinia® Deep Red’                 Sunflower ‘Goldie’ F1
By Suntory Flowers                                By Seeds By Design


Voting will open June 1 and winners will be announced this fall.
