The Ralph Moore trophy

Does anyone have photos of a Ralph Moore Trophy exhibit? Seven miniatures. I need inspiration and a goal.

I have a couple of photos of the Ralph Moore trophy winners. The first one was shown by Ray & Diane Guillebeau in 2023. The second was shown by Bob Martin in 2014. I hope this is helpful.

P.S.: The first is the National Ralph Moore, which calls for 9 miniatures. The second is for the Pacific Southwest District Ralph Moore, which calls for 7 minis.

Thank you so much! I have set myself a goal to do the seven minis for the district trophy. Did Bob have the names of these roses written down? I am at the point of building the collection a varieties. (I miss our mentor, I wish I could just call him up for a mini rose consultation.)

Hi Elena.

Attached are some photos of some of my Cal & Barb Hayes Challenge Class winners calling for 9 minis. It has just recently been opened up to minifloras (Cal would be turning over in his grave), but this is the same as the Ralph Moore.

Here are the minis from Ray’s Ralph Moore: Daddy Frank, Joy, Ty, Swizzle, Edisto, SwirlyPop, Erin Alonso, Arcanum & My First Love

Here are the minis from Bob Martin’s Ralph Moore: This Is The Day, Behold, Erin Alonso, Irresistible, Bee’s Knees, Dancing Flame & Miss Flippins

Here are the minis I used:

  1. Fairhope, Miss Flippins, Wanderlust, Joy, Glowing Amber, Daddy Frank, Magic Show, Dancing Flame, & Dr. Tommy Cairns (photo #1)

  2. Bee’s Knees, Dancing Flame, Fairhope, Peter Alonso, Glowing Amber, Joy, Heather Sproul, Magic Show, Renegade (District Challenge - photo #5)

Those are beautiful. I noticed you had Bee’s Knees in all but one. I love that rose, I’ve won mini queen twice with it.
