>cultivar.  Is it an age difference?

Hi Dave,

Not so much an age difference as different blooms under different 
lighting conditions on different days.  The first flower opened on the 
stalk outside while still attached to the rz.  The second flower opened 
inside after cutting the stalk due to an impending hard freeze. Each 
flower does look a bit different, however, simply by virtue of variances 
in blending of the colors.  Very interesting.
