    Thanks! I am enjoying its bloom. Unfortunately, the foliage is somewhat ugly. A number of leaves had dried ends which I trimmed off. I don't think it would pass muster due to that.

    On the contrary you could very well receive a HCC, FCC, or AM. These are based on a 75-100 point scale based on the flower alone. Cultural recognition awards would require the plant to be in excellent form, but you could definitely be in the running for a flower quality award.
