I obtained this well-named flower from the hybridizer, Bart Beck. The edge is somewhat darker than the petal color here, but I would not say it's dark enough to call it "burgundy." There is also a custard cream outline along the ruffled petals. Very good plant and scape and a very dusty blue appearance.
