Kent  --  The relevance of height within class has mostly to do with the proportions of the plant, particularly the size of the flowers relative to the height of the stalk.  Lots of big flowers on a short stalk usually not too appealing, for instance.  Similarly, small flowers on a very tall and/or widely-branched plant.  Another important consideration is whether the blooms stand up above the foliage.  This tends to be more of a problem with the standard dwarves than with TBs.  Judges take these and LOTS more things into consideration, as you will learn from exhibiting.  --  Griff

It's a beautiful blend. I'll bet in the right light (early or late, probably,
when there's more red) the orange tint shows in the falls in quite a pleasing
and interesting way. (Or maybe not--I'm guessing from my monitor.) And the
blue blaze is attractive too.

I personally care little how tall it is. I like a variety of heights, so I
don't want them all at 40". (Do judges consider height within classes?)

It has enough bud count and decent branching, but looks to be a bit
vertically challenged. Have to see how it does next year, not everyone wants
super tall, I suppose.
