Judges may also consider the exhibit’s educational value and the rarity of the plant materials. The definition of “high flower quality” is to be taken from the American Orchid Society judging forms for hybrids and species.
It shall not be presumed that this trophy will be awarded at every show at which it is available, but that it will be awarded only to exhibits of outstanding high quality.
