2021 Plant of the Year, Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus)

2021 Plant of the Year, Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus) in bloom, and Bartram’s painting of it.

Nominations for GNPS Plant of the Year opened at 7:00 p.m. on October 11th. You must be a member to participate. Get all the details at our previous post about how to submit a nomination, and complete the form at this address as soon as possible (click this link, or copy and paste it to your browser, or click on the big “SUBMIT HERE” text at the bottom of this message):


Submissions must include both the common and scientific (“Latin”) names for the nominee, as well a reason why it would make a great GNPS POY. A sentence will suffice, but feel free to elaborate as much as you’d like. We welcome information, especially regarding ecological significance or benefits to wildlife. Photos are encouraged, but not required (you can send them separately to plantoftheyear@gnps.org).

Previous Plants of the Year are not eligible for nomination.

Members will be notified by email when submissions close.
