The back of each flower is a solid pink color, the front of each tepal is white edged in pink. Very light fragrance. Omoshiro means amusing and also white surface.

2011 was a very cool spring so blooms were delayed from the normal May opening to July.

2012 was a very warm spring so blooms began opening in late April to early May.
