    I love the yellows and reds. The shape of the bloom is REALLY nice!

    Actually it starts out with more of a yellow bluch -- mainly on the back of the petals and sepals. The overall color shift with age, IME, isn't as drastic as it is with so many of the Mueller crosses

    That surprises me, Cin. I once left this plant with the roots COMPLETELY submersed in water for 2 weeks. (I had been watering plants before leaving for my folks' place for Xmas and forgot to take it out of the water) Not only did it not have any root rot issues, it bloomed really well later the next month.

    I'd guess about 2" across
