New Venue for IWGS New Waterlily Competition

Published on August 26, 2011

Beginning in 2012, the IWGS New Waterlily Competition will have a new venue at Denver Botanic Gardens. The change in location was recently approved by the IWGS board of directors based on Tamara Kilbane’s acceptance of a position as the Senior Horticulturist of Aquatic Plants at Denver Botanic Gardens (DBG).

Tamara is currently the director and grower of the IWGS New Waterlily Competition (NWC), and looks forward to continuing her work with the NWC in Denver. She will be leaving Duke Gardens at the end of August and is scheduled to begin at DBG in mid-September. Denver Botanic Gardens has a long history with the IWGS and the New Waterlily Competition, having hosted both the contest and annual symposiums in the past.

And while we‚re on the topic of the New Waterlily Competition, you still have time to vote online for this year‚s favorites! Simply log onto and place your vote for each of the 5 categories. Online voting is open through September 4th. Winners to be announced in September.
