Amy, if your thinking tall beardeds, according to the *Handbook for
Judges and Show Officials* it states:

The ratio of stalks to the number of fans must be at least 25%.  Fewer
stalks will result in plants seriously lacking in color display.  Should
the ratio exceed 75%, flowers will become crowded and few plants will
remain, resulting in *bloom out*.
