And the winner is ….

The greenhouse erupts in a cacophony of cheers and groans! In a stunning David-and-Goliath upset, the unassuming Thuja Nigra has vanquished the terrifying Chamaecyparis Crippsii! Their patient defense and surprising resilience proved too much for the Crippsii’s digestive dominance.

The crowd, a vibrant tapestry of meticulously pruned hedges and lively yellow Forsythia, sways with the news. Thuja Nigra, once a mere Cinderella story, has bloomed into a champion, proving that even the quietest contender can take home the coveted title of Plant Supreme!

Congratulations to the Nigra! Until next year, when the Spring Showdown commences anew, and the greenhouse prepares for another season of botanical brawls!
