My largest flower I have is 5 inches and I use a 3 inch circle on it. The circle gives some support, but I use it more to make sure the flower stays on the elastic. When the HB is one the head will support the flower. I was leery of the largest flowers also, but I made one and used it on my DD to see how it worked and laid on the head.
