    Intermediate to cool grower, warmer during the growing season.
    Flowers are long lasting, 6 weeks or longer under cool condition and don't let the flowers get wet often.

    Beautiful flower.
    But honestly, I prefer the classic one. This one is too round and for me, it loses the charm of the species.

    I know what you mean. Sometimes I do prefer the normal one with narrow petals.
