Name-the-new-plant competition winner

Posted by Graham Rice on 22 Mar 2012 at 01:56 PM

Eschscholzia ‘Pacific Fire’ - named by a reader of this blogI’m delighted to announce that the winner of our competition to name Thompson & Morgan’s bright new California poppy is Radojka Harris from North Saanich, in British Columbia in Canada. Congratulations, Radojka.

Radojka’s suggested name was ‘Pacific Fire’. Michael Perry from T&M and I especially liked the name as it combined both the flower colour, and a reference to the native habitat of the original wild California poppy along America’s Pacific coast. And I thought the name had an air of excitement about it.

Radojka will soon be receiving her prize, and when seed becomes available everyone who entered will receive a free packet.

Thank you everyone for your entries, there were some great names that didn't quite win.
