Cathy is a jewel, a ruby of silk petals and strong stamens finished in gold. I love. Have a nice week. Greetings from Margarita.
I brought this in from the greenhouse to take the photo, Margarita, and within minutes it was openng further!
What a beauty, even not fully open!
I am keeping these in the ‘just frost-free’ greenhouse once the buds appear which means they develop really slowly, Laurie. If I brought them into the house the buds would open fully in no time at all
and a great color .
Looks like silk.
I used to always treat myself to a red one , Jude, but now branch out and have other colours too – Aldi had them at £2.99 (£2.49?) so I bought a few different ones!
I haven’t grown these for years! But I might give a couple a try this year.
That is gorgeous! I love the sparkly sheen!
I had to use the flash for this as I was too late to take a photo in daylight
