Think Pink! Vintage Seed Packets Giveaway

It’s time to give away another vintage seed packet! Today’s prize is the pinks packet.

DSC03811The front of the seed packet depicts two shades of pinks, one pale, one dark. The back of the packet describes the flower in more detail:

A great variety of rich, brilliant colors, shades and markings; plants in bloom constantly from early summer till after severe frosts.

To win the pinks seed packet, all you have to do is answer one question: Pink is a common name for which genus?

Send your answer, along with your name and mailing address, to uspsstamps [at] gmail [dot] com. One winner will be selected at random from those who answer correctly. The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. EDT Saturday, June 1. Good luck! (Note: No seeds are included with this vintage packet.)
