Hi Fiona!

I must admit that I am completely unfamiliar with this type of exhibit. You
mention 12 blooms, but I am assuiming that you are speaking of irises, so
do you mean 12 stalks? How are the entries in the A.N.Z. Championships
judged? Is it solely on horticultural merit, or is there an artistic
element, as in the choice and placement of the varieties entered? I would
be very grateful if you could provide answers to these questions.

Around here irises and roses are not exhibited at the same show as the
bloom season for roses is somewhat later than the main iris bloom season.
