It is almost like it is glowing from the inside of the flower. And the unopened flower is a wonderful compliment. Just a stunning shot.

I love Grandpa Ott! Even those heart shaped leaves are wonderful. But I do not grow Grandpa Ott any more. It simply reseed WAY too much and ended up being a problem. What a shame!

Thank you! I love it too. The colors are wow. I only have a few seedlings pop up. Wish I had more. I always save some seeds.
