This post covers the ADS awards for miniatures at the Murphys, California show.

Miniature Gold and Rose Ribbons

Miniature Gold and Rose Ribbons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Miniature Rose Ribbon is for the best miniature seedling originated by its exhibitor, excluding the Container Section. The Miniature Gold Ribbon is for the best miniature in the show, excluding the Container Section. The winner of both ribbons was seedling 10-05-02 10Y-Y exhibited by Jon Kawaguchi. You can’t tell from the photo, but the diameter of the cup was little more than a half inch (a little more than 1 centimeter for metric users). The perianth segments were uniformly reflexed, but overall it looks more like Division 10 than 6.
