We need help naming a plant again.
Not just any plant - a gorgeous new hybrid Magnolia with the cumbersome name of Magnolia sieboldii 'Colossus' x Magnolia insignis.
I was tempted to name it Magnolia 'Seductive Pink' because that's how we refer to it in the nursery. I'll jut my thumb over my shoulder and say something to Mike in nursery-speak like, "that seductive pink magnolia back there is really growing great and rooting in well; the tops are almost finished."
Then I remembered we had a fun naming contest and now have Hydrangea 'Irish Lace' happily monikered up. Let's do it again!
Naming is not my thing. I find it adorable when people name everything from their cars to a nice piece of wood with a live edge (yes, we sold a slab of southern red oak to a friend and she named it on the spot).
I accomplished all the naming for my lifetime when I named my dog Ruby. I'm tempted to name all consecutive dogs Ruby. With that confession, I illustrate how badly I need help. We need help.
Please post any ideas here. We'll post on Facebook too and send this announcement to our mailing list (reason to subscribe - because we do fun stuff like this - subscribe at bottom right of this page).
If we choose your name, we'll email you and give you a $30 credit (plus free shipping) for the plant of your choice from our store.
This contest is open until we find a name - you'll know we found a name when something catchy and pronounceable appears in the plant description.
Really excited to hear what y'all come up with. I know you're good.
Hillary & Mike
