Eufloria Flowers of Nipomo, Calif., won Best in Show for its standard rose “Milva” at the Society of American Florists’ (SAF) Outstanding Varieties Competition. Results were announced September 25, during 119th Annual Convention held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, Boca Raton, Fla.

According to judge Walter Rojahn, of Rojahn & Malaney in Milwaukee, the Best in Show winner was the “perfect example” of the exciting new products being created by the industry. “Strong varieties make us all look good, and there were plenty of them (at the competition),” he said.
