Awards and Judge Comments

A lush garden, and I'm sure it is a delight in person. However, the R. macrandra is a little overwhelming, and the shadow underneath it becomes the strongest pull for the eye. Think about trimming it back and adding some rocks or wood in the midground to hide the base of the stems.

Karen Randall

The centre mass of red stems is a little overwhelming when compared to the much shorter stems in the remainder of the layout. Some midground planting and/or decor would also strengthen the aquascape.
