B Size are large enough (6″-8″blooms) to say WOW from a distance in the garden, but a lot easier to arrange as cut flowers than the AA or A size blooms. But just like the AA & A, this size will require a strong stake to keep those heavy blooms from catching in the wind and breaking off.
B size blooms tend to be more plentiful and may bloom 2-4 weeks earlier than some of the AA & A size varieties.
The B size is such a popular size in our society, we split them up to make it easier to view and vote on. The 3 forms in this group are: Formal Decorative (FD), Informal Decorative (ID) and Semi-cactus (SC).
