Billboard: Springing to life

Challenge #18 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The client is a new heath product manufacturer looking to improve their brand image with a "growth" message. They seek an image suitable for a billboard (16:9). The image must be of a plant springing up from the soil. The soil can be a garden or a potting bed. The plant must be on the far right or far left side of the image to make room for text. At least half the image must be dark or light enough to allow a text overlay (suitable "white space"). This can be achieved in-camera or through photo editing. There must be no additional elements that distract from the subject (that means that such elements are acceptable so long as they're not distracting).
