The latest supplements to these publications is the final authority. 3. Entries will be accepted at the Garden Center, 1005 Riverside Ave., Jacksonville, Florida, from 6:00am to 10:00am. All roses entered in the show become the property of the Show Committee. 4. Standard ARS entry tags must be used for all entries (Miniature tags for miniature entries and Arrangement tags for arrangements, etc.).

Any class calling for one-bloom-per-stem specimens must be exhibited without side buds. A side bud is defined as growth emanating from the leaf axil having sufficient maturity to display the formation of a stem with or without flower buds. These conditions are subject to disqualification. The presence of one or two leaflets or leaves at the leaf axil with no evidence of a stem is cause for penalization but not disqualification. An undeveloped stem, at the leaf axil, lacking leaf or flower bud development, is cause for penalization, but not disqualification. e. The appearance of exhibitor's name in any location other than the designated place on the entry tag. 10. Blue, red, yellow and white ribbons will be awarded. ARS gold, silver and bronze certificates will be awarded roses which are chosen as the Queen, the King, and the Princess. The judges may withhold any award when specimens in any section do not merit it. Only blue-ribbon winners may appear on the Award Table. 11. In each section as many blue (first), red (second), yellow (third) and white (fourth) ribbons may be awarded as judges deem worthy. 12. In most cases, an exhibition bloom is considered at its most perfect phase of possible beauty when it is from one-half to one-fourths open with sufficient petals symmetrically arranged in an attractive outline tending toward a high center. 13. Each variety entered will be placed alphabetically within the designated Class, disregarding color classification. 14. Where the schedule specifies specimens be shown at exhibition stage, it refers to Queen of Show stage. 15.
