o The GardenWeb Crossword Puzzle

We have a winner!!

Ricardo Torres of Las Cruces, New Mexico, was the first to submit the correct answer to this month's puzzle.

And what was the correct answer?

Artemisia annua

Artemisia annua, commonly known as sweet Annie, is a green-leaved annual aromatic herb. It tolerates a little frost and therefore is a useful winter annual in Zone 9.

Note: Due to an editorial error, the solution was spelled incorrectly as Artemesia annua. We regret the error.

For those who missed it, this is the contest Ricardo has won (along with the solution to the puzzle):

One clue from the puzzle (in bold and marked with an asterix*) refers to the botanical name of a plant which, coincidentally, is listed in the extensive Southern Perennials & Herbs catalog. The winner of the contest will be the first person who correctly determines the botanical name (genus and species) of this palnt. Please read the instructions carefully.
