Three Winners from GCCC in The Gesneriad Society 2020 Virtual Flower Show


The Gesneriad Society cancelled its annual convention and judged flower show in July 2020 due to COVID-19. The GS then decided to stage an online Virtual Flower Show. Each member of the Gesneriad Society could send in, up to five different photos of gesneriads that they have been growing for at least three months, during the period from August 2019 toJuly 2020. Each entry had to be submitted under only one name but a separate photographer could also be listed. Plants that were rare, unusual or had notbeen seen before in the show were required to have an educational sheetdetailing information about the entry. The Gesneriad Society 2020 Virtual Flower Show had 345 entries from 89 exhibitors from around the world.

People could then vote on their favorite photo entry, and eventually 7 were chosen as winners.
