3 Miniatures by Hybridizer Ribbon

The classes for miniatures by the hybridizer require the exhibitor to be both the hybridizer and the originator of the flowers in the exhibit. There are carefully worded definitions of hybridizer and originator, but I’ll skip them in this post. The flowers in the class for 3 by hybridizer are – 07-14 10Y-Y, 08-18-01 10G-W (N. bulbocodium var. graelsii x ‘Cornish Cream’), 08-09 10Y-Y. The exhibitor was Jon Kawaguchi.
