>The English Box and the Artists Palette have been at every rose show I have ever attended.
They truly do show off the rose in a very striking manner. I view these entry classes as somewhat challenging.
The Rose Show guide outlines the following for an English Box entry:
Six (6) Hybrid Tea or Grandiflora blooms, at least three varieties and at exhibition stage.
The trick is to place them in the English Box in such a way to grab the judges attention. Some say light to dark and others say dark to light. If I ever get enough blooms to enter one, I will let you know.

The Artist’s Palette
The Rose Show guide outlines the following for an Artist’s Palette:
Five (5) Floribunda blooms, at their most perfect phase of possible beauty, five different varieties.
Betty Boop, Lavaglut, Scentimental and Mardi Gras.
I think you will too!
