ALPHABETICAL SHOW SCHEDULE CLARIFICATION
Roses will be placed on exhibit table in alphabetical order in each general class. General classes will be expanded to create a subclass for each variety entered. Since each separate variety will constitute a subclass, a rose or roses entered in each separate subclass will be judged against the merits of that variety.
For example: The following roses beginning with the letter A are entered in Class 1 (hybrid teas and grandifloras): Alabama, Alleluia, Allspice, Aquarius, Arizona, Avon, Azure Sea, etc. EACH variety will be judged on its own merits and will be awarded accordingly. Even though ONLY ONE rose of the variety Alabama, for example, might be entered, it will be judged on its own merit and could receive a first place award.
The same alphabetical order and creation of a separate sub-class for each variety will be followed for all general classes calling for specimen roses.
In addition to the awards listed for each class, the following will be awarded for Division I, Horticulture.
