One of my prettiest recurved varieties. It starts out mauve pink and fades a little to a seashell pink by the end of the day. The wide petals and sepals form a 5" circular flower that looks very lush with the darker halo. Mine bloom a long time, from late April into June. I cut scapes of it to bring indoors for a couple of days of flowers.
