Dedicated hibiscus gardener wins contest

And the winner is....Julie London!

We had some stunning entries in this month’s gardening contest which called for showing off your favorite hibiscus. These tropical beauties will bloom from spring through the first frost. Our winner, Julie London, is a dedicated grower of hibiscus.

“Most of the hibiscus I own have been with me for eight or ten years. They are all in pots so I drag them into my carport every winter and then drag them back out once it warms up.”

Another stunning entry from Julie’s garden.

We’d say Julie is a true hibiscus lover to go to all that trouble but she is rewarded for her efforts each year.

“I love them because the blooms are so big and beautiful and there are so many different colors available.”

We salute Julie’s green thumb with another hibiscus addition to her garden from Lowe’s of Cornelia.


Our panel of judges were also quite smitten with several other entries in this month’s gardening contest including these tropical and perennial blooms.

Thanks again for all your entries which for a few days took us to the tropics. Congratulations to Julie! And as always, thanks to Lowe’s of Cornelia for our monthly giveaways! Until next time, happy planting!
