    No. The flower is completely open. I have a similar flower, but dark-violet colour.
    They look the same way for a long time.

    The flowers are peloric, that's why they don't look completely open. It is likely not possible to identify the plant with any degree of certainty because it is a hybrid and there are so many Phal. hybrids that are similar. A name isn't needed to enjoy it.
