              Horticulture Judging:  For all meeting unless redefined.

              All horticulture specimens submitted for entry should have the correct
              botanical name. This requirement is in preparation for the next flower
              show.
              Horticulture entries will be accepted for judging on their own merits.
              Entries may be:
                    • Any house plant that is small enough to carry
                    • Anything in your garden that looks good.
                    • Branches of trees and shrubs should not exceed 18 inches (no
                      individual leaves)
                    • Cut blooms should be according to flower show standards (for
                      example, a floribunda rose should have a cluster of blooms. One
                      cluster is a specimen. Tall bearded iris are shown in a complete
                      stalk with several blooms. A hydrangea macrophylla bloom is one
                      mophead).
