Flowers and Plants

Superintendents: Suzie Copeland, Lois Caster, Ashley Sweetser, Becky Stephenson, Franny Beacom
Age Groups: Junior, Teen, Adult, Adult Plus, Senior, Senior Plus, Pro
2 entries/numbered category
Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion ribbons may be awarded in each division and age category. At the discretion of the judge, Champion ribbons may be awarded in each division and age category. The Superintendent reserves the right to remove any exhibit deemed unsuitable for display.

Entries identified as a noxious weed will be disqualified and destroyed.

Entries will be disqualified if they have insects or do not contain the number of blooms or stems designated in each class.
Flowers should be exhibited with blooms of uniform size, shape and color, straight stems and any natural foliage. Exhibitors must furnish their own containers.

Flowers exhibited should be at the peak of maturity, not wilting, and able to hold up well in the show. Hardening flowers after cutting is important. To prepare exhibit, gather in late afternoon the day before the show, cut stems under water and remove lower foliage with a sharp knife. Plunge immediately up to the neck into warm water for an hour before placing in a cool, dark place (refrigerator 40-50 degrees F) overnight. The morning of the show, 1/2 inch should be removed from the stem. There should be no dead blooms present.

For the exhibits:
Bloom: one individual flower with stem and foliage
Stem: A lengthened flower cluster, such as a Gladiola
Spray: A main stem with side branches and several blooms
Unless noted otherwise each entry should contain 3 stems.

TIP: Pour about 1/4 cup of soda pop into the water in a vase full of cut flowers. The sugar in the soda will make the blossoms last longer. If you have a clear vase and want the water to remain clear, use a clear soda, like Sprite or 7-Up.
