Awards and Judge Comments

The waviness of the Glossostigma and the good slope it creates up to the mound works very well. Adding some species to create more contrast would be nice.

Phil Edwards

Nice arrangement, but it would hold my interest more with a little more variety, either in terms of form or color.

Karen Randall

It is a convex composition layout, but its impression is vague. It looks better with stemmed plants in the background.
