I gathered up all the Z botanical matter that I have in the house (I think). A couple ZZ plant book ends to my favorite pinguicula (don't tell the others). Left to right:

ZZ.jpg
  • ZZ raven - almost black mature foliage that is stunningly contrasted by spring green colored new growth, which slowly morphs to almost-black. A very fun plant to watch as it transitions!
  • P. zecheri - the leaves, the LARGE flowers (they almost resemble streptocarpus flowers, ping-style, of course)
  • And my mature 'typical' ZZ that I've had for ~12 years
Another reason I 've been looking forward to Z-day, and my last Z-trivia, is that my sometimes-family-nickname was "Z" because of a z-shaped birthmark.

This has been a really engaging, inventive giveaway - hollyhock, you have quite the reputation as the giveaway queen, but dang! Thanks for hostess-ing this wild ride!
I immediately thought of pinguicula Zecheri . All those plants sound very interesting. I have truly learned and seen many new things. I award you +100 bonus "Z" :lol: and thank you for your kind words :D

Well we've reached the end of the alphabet and I must admit I'm a little sad it's over. I have said it before and I will say it again. I have really enjoyed seeing new and different plants. Seeing everyone participating, being creative and hopefully having lots of fun along the way.
I said I have one final twist. And here's how it goes :

If you posted 1-13 letters +50 bonus

If you posted 14-25 letters +100 bonus

If you posted all 26 letters +150 bonus

If you made something by hand like a drawing or a little scene add +50 total (not per post)
If you wrote poetry +50 total (not per post)
If you told a joke or riddle +25 total (not per post)
If your posts had a theme add +100 total (not per post.) Example elaineo parsley, sage, rosemary, and Thyme Scarborough fair theme.
And now it's time for everyone to tally their scores. I will wait until tomorrow sometime so you have a chance to add bonus points and calculate your total.
Good luck and again I'm grateful to all of you for playing another hollyhock giveaway game.

I have no clue. But if you had taken that Z plant to the Zilwalkee bridge? Man that would have been a million bonus points :lol:

Well if it stumped you .... a zucchini :mrgreen:
Since Elaineo posted a zucchini plant and you said you loved zucchinis, I thought you'd get it right away.
