John, we grow S. T. and it is a great rebloomer, it almost always has at
least one bloom that is 4 +4 so we know that is one of its
characteristics and I would judge it that way.  In checking the R&I, Joe
Ghio mentions that it  "often with extra petals".  Should we be
influenced or not?  I think that is what makes judging so great a
lesson, since we all read the rule book differently.  lorraine in
Modesto CA.

If I were judging here in the bay area (or most of Ca for that matter) if S T showed with 4 and 4, I would treat it as a typical bloom. If it showed with 3 and 3 I'd have to think a little about whether it was not grown as well as it could be. But then, at the moment I don't have two other judges to content with... <grin>
