Awards and Judge Comments

This is fairly standard planting arrangement, but it is beautifully done. The rockwork is lovely, and the red plants are "just enough" without being overdone. Very nice!

Karen Randall

Excellent pruning technique! The Lobelia cardinalis is a little distrating with it relatively broad leaves in relation to the remainder of the planting and the hairgrass-like plant in front seems unecessary. However, the overall composition is very good with clever rockwork. Well done.

George Farmer

"Mama" would be proud. Key design elements, such as color, leaf shape, hardscape, as well as the layout's elegant diagonal profile, are artfully in balance here.
