    I like the way the flower parts all stand out- may not be the kind of shape which would win awards, but it would keep me very happy. And anyway, award judging is so artificial in my view.

    This is true Geoff. In my opinion, you like what you like and sometimes judges are looking for such contrived versions of the flowers. I prefer to let my plants just be as they wish. (With help from me for basic care of course.) Even with my phals--I don't stake them until they are perfectly straight. I like to let them ramble on a bit more like they would in nature.
