is a first bloom seedling, in bud now. The flowers should be nice, but
as with any first-time bloomer, the full glory may not appear until the
second or third blooming as the plant matures.
You can expect there to be some variety in the flowers, as these are a seed (sib) cross, but all should be really pretty.
