Yes, Linda, it is a big flower  --  7 - 8 inches across at the falls.  Can't send you a top-down photo, though.  High winds overnight broke one of the falls.  Just average substance, therefore.  The cross is 'Again and Again' X 'Autumn Nectar'(Lili Marlene x Cherry Glen).  Both parents are rebloomers, and both are better-looking than this particular progeny.  I registered 'Autumn Nectar' this year.  It has heavy substance.  Photo attached.  --  Griff

Looks like it has nice big flowers and ruffles - what's it look like
from above?

Is it an optical illusion or does it have a lighter band around the falls?

Just curious - what's the pedigree?

After making a few attempted rebloom crosses, I'm getting a better
appreciation for how difficult it can be to get something that reblooms
at all (at least here in the 'vale'), much less a nice one.

> Here's one blooming today for the first time -- and that's about all that can be said for it, except that it has a nice stalk. Needs to be crossed with something that has flaring falls. -- Griff
