    Default Latest closeup pic of dianthum blooms

    Here it is, the last bud is still opening and the first two flowers are now fully opened and the petals have twisted some more.

    Fabulous Pete! You must adore having so many pretty plants in bloom right now. Loved seeing your group shot of these the other day. Thanks so much for always sharing!

    Heather, here is the side view of the bloom and see if you can see the "blue" on the side like I was telling you about earlier. I can see it a little in the pic (more so in real life) but I'm sure it must be pinky red like you said. Let me know!

    Yes, particularly the coloring to the left of the long twisty petal - blueish to you, pinky red to me. It must be really spectacular in real life!!
    I was having trouble expaining the exact area to you so this pic helps narrow it down for us.

    Oh, good, at least now you know what I meant when I said they looked "blue" to me! Yes, they are very stunningly more beautiful in person! You should get one and yes they are not very common plants and a little harder to find especially nice quality ones.

    Hm, yeah, I always enjoy our color discussions. Do the lower ends of the twisty petals appear blue to you also? They are a similar but lighter pinky-red to me. Actually hunting around earlier I found several of these where the pouch and petals are much more green with very little hinting of the pink. Yours is very nice. I like it better than the greener ones. You should tell me the cross sometime, if you feel like sharing.

    Yeah, me too but too bad I can't describe them the way a normal person would see them.

    I told you where I got my dianthum and parishii, do you not remember?

    Hey, I just noticed this - the leaves in the very first pic in here where you used the blue background again look to have a reddish tinge to me. Must be the background reflection, same as the parishii.
