Judging categories include Bonsai & Hon Non Bo, Container-Grown Succulents, Roses, Herbs, and Hanging PlantsâÂ?¦just to name a few. The second division of the show celebrates the creative use of flowers in floral design. Categories include Miniature & Small Designs, Picture Boxes, and Table Designs; each with their own themes and awards. Coronado home fronts are also in the running for the coveted first place blue ribbon and title "Best in the City!" In the weeks approaching Flower Show weekend, judges distribute prize ribbons to green thumbs island-wide, which homeowners proudly display in their front windows!
