A Riot of Color Contest Winner

Thanks to all who entered our Riot of Color Contest, and I know it wasn't an easy assignment. No doubt you confirmed many of your guesses by looking them up on our website photo library.

#49 Rhododendron luteum




#32 Enkianthus perulatus



















Sok S. was the winner, missing only 7, and some by not much. For example #32 is Enkianthus perulatus, not campanulatus. #49 was Rhododendron luteumn, not Sok's guess of Franklinia alatamaha, but the similarity is striking. Anyway, we'll be in contact with Sok to receive a fantastic plant prize.
