RAFFLE: Name a Rhody
A $10,000 Legacy Naming Right Opportunity
with Your Purchase of a $10.00 Raffle Ticket.
Name a Rhody. That's right - YOU have an opportunity to name a rhody that will be registered with the Royal Horticulture Society. You could name it for a loved one, pay tribute to a special place, or honor a family member.
In addition, tissue cultures will be created for future propagation making it part of the Meerkerk Legacy Collection. Your named Rhody will become part of Meerkerk's unique plant collection as well as being offered in the Specialty Nursery.
If you want to view the Rhody it is currently planted along the path next to the seating area by the Gatehouse. The plant has wonderful shiny leaves, soft indumentum, and a lax truss with deep "rose pink" colored blossoms.
Your rhody will join other Meerkerk registered rhodies: the Meerkerk Magic, the Meerkerk White, and the Meerkerk Wonder.
Tickets are $10.00 each and available during Peak Bloom weekends, from an attendant, at the Gatehouse from mid-March through May; or at all the Meerkerk events; or by calling the Meerkerk admin office (360.678.1912) to purchase your tickets.
The drawing will be held on September 7th at Meerkerk Gardens
