The 2015 Murphys show was March 21-22 at Kautz Ironstone Vineyards. Murphys is an historic gold mining town in the Mother Lode region of California. We had a very early season in California so several of us were holding flowers in refrigerators for a couple weeks so that there would be flowers for this show. You’ll see some flowers were wilting by the time I got around to photographing them. Of course they were barely holding up during the judging. I took some photos with a hand held camera in ambient light just to capture the flowers quickly before they wilted any more. Since it was a small show with fewer than normal ADS awards, I’ll show them all in this posting rather than spread them out over several postings. Any award that’s not mentioned was not given. So here they are in the order in which they’re listed in the show report. The single cultivar winners come first, followed by the standard collections and then the miniature collections.

Gold Ribbon Winner, Cape Point 2W-P exhibited by Kirby Fong

Rose Ribbon Winner, 5-2-1069 exhibited by Bob Spotts

The Rose Ribbon is for the best standard seedling excluding container classes exhibited by its originator excluding the container classes. This was shown as 7Y-Y although it had a green cast. Still, it was closer to yellow than green.

White Ribbon Winner, Exotic Mystery 11aY-YGY exhibited by Kirby Fong

The White Ribbon is for the best set of 3 standards. I’m somewhat chagrined that this exhibit won, but as they say, “The decision of the judges is final.”

Best Intermediate Bloom, Reg Nicholl 2Y-YYR exhibited by Kirby Fong

Best Intermediate Bloom, Reg Nicholl 2Y-YYR exhibited by Kirby Fong

The Best Intermediate bloom is chosen only from the Intermediate section plus the standard collections. That means the judges don’t have to scour the entire show looking for it.

Best Set of 3 Intermediates, La Traviata 3Y-YYR exhibited by Kirby Fong

Best Set of 3 Intermediates, La Traviata 3Y-YYR exhibited by Kirby Fong

This and some of the miniature collections barely survived the judging and had started to wilt by the time I got around to photographing them.

Historic Best Bloom, Thalia 5W-W (1916) exhibited by Melissa Reading and John Castor

Historic Best Bloom, Thalia 5W-W (1916) exhibited by Melissa Reading and John Castor

This award is for the best bloom in the Historic Section of the show.

Best Set of 3 Historics, Thalia 5W-W (1916) exhibited by Albert Ehlings

Best Set of 3 Historics, Thalia 5W-W (1916) exhibited by Albert Ehlings

It was obviously a good year for ‘Thalia.’ You’ll shortly see that it was also a good year for ‘Tahiti.’

Best Classic Bloom, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Michael van der Porten

Best Classic Bloom, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Michael van der Porten

The best classic bloom is chosen from blooms in the Classic Section. The winner happened to be the middle bloom in a set of three.

Best Classic Single Stem Exhibit, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Jan Moyers

Best Classic Single Stem Exhibit, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Jan Moyers

Unlike the other sections, the Classic Section has an award for the best single stem exhibit as well as the best bloom in the section.

Best Set of 3 Classics, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Michael van der Porten

Best Set of 3 Classics, Tahiti 4Y-O (1956) exhibited by Michael van der Porten

Yes, the middle flower was the best bloom in the Classics Section. There were other cultivars exhibited, but I guess this was the year for ‘Tahiti.’

Small Grower Ribbon Winner, Tahiti 4Y-O exhibited by John Rosenbohm

Small Grower Ribbon Winner, Tahiti 4Y-O exhibited by John Rosenbohm

‘Tahiti’ as also the best bloom in the Small Grower Section. This section is open only to exhibitors who grow 50 or fewer cultivars.

Best Container of Standards, Avalon 2Y-W exhibited by Ironstone Vineyards

Best Container of Standards, Avalon 2Y-W exhibited by Ironstone Vineyards

There were three entries in this class. This half wine barrel of ‘Avalon’ certainly gets full credit for “floriferousness.” Try putting a half wine barrel in your car to take to a show!
