In this third of three posts about the 2013 Murphys show I cover the American Daffodil Society awards for miniature daffodils.

The Miniature Gold Ribbon is for the best miniature daffodil excluding the Historic and Container Sections.  It happens that the flower was a seedling exhibited by its originator so it also won the Miniature Rose Ribbon.  The flower is seedling 08-6-01 10W-W exhibited by Jon Kawaguchi. Notice the nicely scalloped rim on the corona. The perianth segments do twist, but they all twist the same way and therefore maintain symmetry.

The Miniature White Ribbon is for the best set of three miniature daffodils. The winning exhibit was ‘Polar Cub’ 2W-W exhibited by Harold Koopowitz and Marilynn Howe.

And this concludes the ADS award winners at the 2013 Murphys show. Some awards were not given either due to no entries or entries not meeting the criteria for their awards, but these three posts cover all the horticultural awards that were given.
