Win 6 Trillium cuneatum Plants from Sunshine Farm & Gardens

For our March 2012 Washington Gardener Reader Contest, Washington Gardener Magazine is giving away six Trillium cuneatum plants from Sunshine Farm & Gardens (http://www.sunfarm.com/) to one lucky winner chosen at random.

Despite their exotic, magical, mystical appearance, most Trilliums are quite easy to grow and Trillium cuneatum is no exception. Trillium cuneatum is native to 11 Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states. Here’s a plant that you will instantly fall in love with as its deep burgundy flowers bloom for an extremely long period of time in early to mid Spring. With the most exciting marbled foliage and with no two plants alike, their silvery leaves electrically light up even the shadiest of gardens.

Sunshine Farm & Gardens is the brainchild of Barry Glick. In the past 32 years they’ve managed to amass a diverse collection of well over 10,000 different, hardy to zone 5 perennials, bulbs, trees, and shrubs from every corner of the Earth on their 60-acre mountain top at 3,000 feet in beautiful Greenbrier County WV.

To enter to win the 6 Trillium plants (valued at $50), send an email to WashingtonGardener@rcn.com by 5:00pm on March 29 with “Sunshine Trilliums” in the subject line and tell us: What is your native plant? In the body of the email, please also include your full name and mailing address. The winner will be announced and notified by April 2.
