In addition to the show, theme, and collection gardens, the Cleveland Botanical Garden Flower Show
has more than 1000 individual garden entries on display. These entrants compete for honors in the Show's flower arranging (entry pictured at left), horticulture (container garden entry pictured at bottom right), jewelry, and youth divisions.
Honors are awarded for first place to honorable mention, in each division. Judges come from all over the country and the Garden director Natalie Ronayne says that the "depth and experience of the judges are part of what makes the Cleveland Botanical Garden show so well-regarded."
Also pictured above (top right) is an entrant in the non-competitive display of the ancient Japanese art of Ikebana.
