    I'm thinking the bloom is about 14 to 16 inches from tip to tip.

    I bet you are right on the size... I had one bloom measure out at 19" one time but most of the time they top out at 17" for me. When mine is in bloom, I am always checking the bottom of my shoe to make sure I didn't step in dog droppings.
