Judging Exhibition Blooms

Post by Ausrose on 30th December 2013, 15:31

Judging roses is based on specific criteria as set out by the various governing bodies. In Australia this being the National Rose Society of Australia. In Australia the pointing criteria out of ten is:- Form-4, Condition-3, Size-2 and Presentation (includes stem and foliage)-1.

Serious defects in exhibition blooms are :- irregular outline, split, blunt or confused centres, stained or damaged petals, staleness, lack of size and immaturity.

As you can see fragrance doesn't come into it when exhibition blooms are being judged the criteria is purely visual.


I would point out in some shows there is a class for the most fragrant rose however this only a minor class.

With respect to exhibition blooms in my time as an exhibitor the top one has been Moonstone followed by Kardinal and Tineke. Other exhibition roses to win on the show bench are:- Coral Fiesta, Diana Princess of Wales, Memoire, City of Newcastle, Red Cedar, St Patrick. There are others however I don't have access to my files as I am having a few days break at our town house on the lower north coast at Tuncurry. When I get back to Emu Plains I'll be able to supply a more comprehensive list. Another two that come to mind are the Aussies Amazing Grace (Chapman) and Our Rosamond (Bell).

Doug, I know I can be a pain in the bottom at times with some of my questions, so it might be opportune to start another thread.
I will start it here, which red in all categories wins the most, new rose or all-time old favourite.

David I am not quite sure of what you mean however I  assuming you mean which red rose is the most popular. The WFRS has a Hall of Fame and there are two red roses in this list these being Papa Meillamd and Ingrid Bergman. Neither of these red roses rate as an exhibition rose as the petals are too loose and the centres are poor. You may ask how do you become a WFRS Hall of Fame rose. All of the member countries of WFRS vote so in actual fact a Hall of Fame rose is one selected by members of rose societies throughout the world. As far as I can remember the only criteria is the rose must
be in commercial production for at least ten years.

After Kardinal City of Newcastle is next most successful red exhibition bloom. I would point out the exhibition class described earlier in this thread is just one of a number of classes that go on the show bench other classes include ones for floribundas, miniatures, minifloras and shrub roses. Successful red roses in these classes are:- Floribunda - Evelyn Fison, Miniflora-Red Gem and Miniature-Ruby. The shrub roses class is only new so no red rose has established itself as yet.

In 2011 the AQ and I compiled a booklet on judging and exhibiting roses. The booklet is in electronic form and we are quite happy to send members of this forum a complimentary copy of the booklet. All you need to do is send me your email address via a PM and a copy will be forwarded to you.
