The Miss Huff Lantana won the title of Woodstock City Flower, receiving 55 percent of the vote in last week’s runoff election against the Rudbeckia.
Billy Peppers, Main Street Woodstock director, said there were 359 votes cast in the online election that concluded Friday. The winner was announced in an email blast and on Facebook on Monday afternoon.
Now that spring has sprung, residents will start to see the Miss Huff Lantana planted throughout downtown and the rest of the city.
Members of Green Reaps Opportunity for Woodstock will feature the flower in various streetscapes, said Melissa Casteel, co-founder of the volunteer greenscape and beautification group.
The flower is expected to be used in the group’s logo as well.
The organization has also urged local landscaping businesses to feature the flower and looks for businesses and residents to incorporate it into landscaping all around the city.
The two final contenders beat out Blue Paradise Phlox, Clarence Blue Iris, Russian Sage and Shasta Daisy.
About 500 people voted in the original poll.
