I love your avatar pic. the shading is perfect for the rose. Yes, I was very disappointed in the color at first then decided that the dark lavendar back and lighter front was really quite pretty.

the center looks black but it isn't. Just very dark lavender until it opens further.

Brecks sells it. If you look at their picture it is pretty obvious that it was photo shopped. The text says it is lavendar not blue but the picture supports the name "Blue Star". So I never read the description. I guess that gives them the out to not be accused of false advertising.
