I would like to see more detail here about what constitutes a good spuria stalk and placement of blooms. The manual tells us what is the best stalk and right and wrong placement for buds and branching and suggests the number of buds. If there is no such standard for spuria, then say so. I doesn't come up where I live because the shows are far too early for spuria to be in bloom. Yet I can imagine places where I might want to know what standards, if any, apply to spuria. I do grow them so it would be nice to know more about how they should appear in the garden as well. -- BettyAnnGunther - 2016-06-15
