What's in Bloom at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates?

Name those Plants – Win a Plant!

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On January 25th

Win this hanging basket of gazania by being the first to correctly identify eight of the plants featured in yesterday’s What’s Blooming post.  Number and write your answers as a comment to this blog post below. Include the common name and the genus in your answer.

We’ll check the comments at least once daily and the comments will be hidden until someone correctly guesses all eight.   Click on the picture for a larger image.  If no one gets all eight, the person with the highest number correct will win!  Contest ends Friday, Jan 28 at noon.  Prizes cannot be shipped. Good luck!

    Answers should be submitted like this: 1) Banana, genus Musa 2) Banyan, genus Ficus, etc. Obviously these are not the correct answers, but you get the idea! Good luck! 🙂
