All pictures are from the Randolph Garden Club - 2012 Flower Show: A Garden Party, Class 6. "Asparagus" - A Creative Parallel Design.

  1. A Creative Design in which three or more grouping of plant material and other (optional) components are placed in a strong parallel manner in a single container, on a base, or both. Multiple containers/bases may be used if combined so as to appear as one unit.
    1. Parallel direction may be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, based on schedule or at discretion of exhibitor, within alloted spaces.
    2. Only the overall effect must appear parallel, for components within each grouping need not be precisely equidistant from components in adjacent groupings.
    3. Open space (voids) between each grouping is vital to success.
  2. All groupings may be of same plant materials, varied combinations of selected plant materials, or different plant material, plus other components as desired.
  3. A connective/s may be used to unify the design.
