Some aril species have domed standards. Some closed and ruffled ones. Others erect, and still others wide open. So I work with a variety of forms.
Other factors being equal [such as strong midrib & good substance] the open standards take the wind the best. In this case, the seedling in the background had already been blown down. Think of it in terms of a lever arm -- cross-sectional area multiplied by distance above ground. Smaller flowers on shorter stalks, like the tetraploid 3/4-breds, can take more wind than larger flowers on taller stalks.
There's also the consideration of pattern. Prominent style arms are a desirable aril trait. Contrasting style arms or those with intricate patterns are better seen through somewhat open standards.
