Named after the bobble on the top of a French sailor's hat. Unlike all other forms, pompons should face directly upwards from the stem - a ball on a stick - not towards the judge. Specific judging standards for the type appear below. Bloom size must be under 50mm.
See Judging Guidelines for additional standards that apply to all types.
Bloom should be fully double and spherical like a golf ball. Centre should be closed, fully developed and as high as the surrounding face florets.
Florets should be uniform in size throughout the bloom. All florets should be involute for the whole of their length, regularly arranged and the tips of the florets should appear to be rounded. Back florets of the bloom should reflex to the stem.
