    It's cute, but the petals looks "smooshed" (I wish I could say that in German.)

    Is it because they haven't fully opened yet?

    That should be very pretty....very nice color...we don't get too many dark phals. Around here we have those vapid party throwers that like the big white phals. After the party they just trash them!! We have the gentle pastel colors mostly, with the rare blue here and there. Luckily we have tons of nurseries so on occasion I find a rare beauty to bring back to the porch.

    Hello,
    The blossom´s fully open.New picture from today.
    I don´t know what´s "smooshed " ?And I can´t find this word.
    Do you mean the tepals inside looks like forwards ?
    Yes,they do it a little bit,looks like pig´s ear

    Funny...I didn't think it was a real word, but I found it in the dictionary....

    smoosh (smsh)
    tr.v. smooshed, smoosh·ing, smoosh·es Informal
    To squash or mash: "Some particularly unhappy homeowners have tried to scrape the ladybugs off their walls, or worse, smooshed them"
