Hi Linda,

I am not aware of any flower size restriction for TBs.  However, you said 
this was a seedling.  The judges were correctly using garden judging principles 
for judging the seedling, not flower show judging principles.  This includes 
proportion of bloom to stalk.  Modern TB cultivars are expected to have larger 
flowers than BB cultivars or older TBs in order to make a good show of color.  
Since this is somewhat subjective, a different panel of judges might view your 
seedling differently.
