DEPARTMENT 3
FLOWERS AND PLANTS

No exhibitor may enter more than one plant of the same variety, or a total of 5 plants if space becomes an issue. No flowers will be accepted in a pot with a bottom larger than 8 inches. Name must be legibly and correctly written on a stiff card and attached. Blue, red and purple ribbons will be given in each variety.

Flower specimens, arrangements, and plants are judged on the basis of size, color, maturity, freedom from defects, and presentation. In all cases characteristics of the individual species or cultivar are important. Certain qualities may be more or less significant depending on category.

Entries may be disqualified if determined to be infested with insects or disease, deceptive in presentation, or not consistent with guidelines for entry.

  • Size: length of stem, number and size of leaves, size of the-flower itself, all in proportion.
  • Color: intensity and uniformity; fully developed.
  • Maturity: appropriate to species; flowers picked fully mature may lose petals quickly.
  • Freedom from Defects: disease, insect damage, physical damage, incomplete development, wilting, shriveling, drying, chemical injury, sunscald, and nutritional deficiencies are considered undesirable.
  • Presentation: entered in correct category according to guidelines, arranged for three dimensional viewing.
