This is an exquisite flower that undergoes a remarkable transformation during the day. Pictured in the afternoon – see website for AM. Starts the day as rosy cranberry; cranberry etching with cranberry lavender watermark; small cranberry violet eyeliner+lav+ivory gold edge; twinkle midribs; y/gr throat. In the afternoon the petal color fades to cranberry lavender and the sepals stay the same color as in the morning, becoming a reverse bitone. Very, very distinctive and attractive. If you look at your flowers only in the morning, you’ll miss the fun and mystery of this flower. Fertile both ways.
