The 2012 Plant of the Year was presented today, Wednesday April 18, by the South Tyrolean Flower Growers Association in one of the most charming gardens of Italy, those of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Merano.
This year's choice is a quite unique plant, the Peruvian Lily, presented by Sandra Rieder, guest of honor of the event and current Miss Südtirol. The plant was put near the Terrace of Sissi, in a privileged position overlooking the gardens.
This plant, original from Brazil and South Africa, is appreciated both as pot plant and garden plant.
Have a look at the other events of the Gardens of Sissi.
