This is the third of three posts covering the ADS awards at the Livermore show. The previous posts covered all the awards for standard daffodils. This one will cover the awards for miniature daffodils

We start with the winner of the Miniature Gold Ribbon for the best miniature in the show excluding the historic and container sections. It also happened to be a seedling exhibited by its originators, so it also won the Miniature Rose Ribbon. It is seedling 08-047-1 2Y-O exhibited by Harold Koopowitz and Marilynn Howe. For those of you not familiar with miniatures, the bulk of the cultivars are yellow or white. Harold and Marilynn have been working hard to breed color into miniatures.

The award for 3 Miniatures by the Hybridizer went to the following exhibit. The exhibitors were Harold Koopowitz and Marilynn Howe. The flowers are – 02-129-3 8Y-W, 03-022-11 8W-W, 08-056-12 10Y-Y. The specific requirement for this and the next two awards are that the miniature must be both bred and originated by the exhibitor. The hybridizer does the cross, and the originator is the first to flower the new cultivar. The intent of the awards is that it should be the same person for the entire process.

    Harold and Marilyn-what an amazing display of the future of miniatures. Such amazing colors and forms which were only dreams -how far you have progressed this small miniature world. Thank you also to the photographers so that we can see this miracle both in the group shot (Kirby) and individually (Ben). The bi-color took our breath away-WOW!!!  We are in total awe! And if not for this forum the world would be closed off too-so thanks Ben and Nancy for making this all possible.  This is the best EVER!! Kate
