She tells me that she dead-heads it every day as each opened blossom lasts for only one day, but there are always one or two more open the next day.
After reading about this, I've learned that they come in many colors and some blossoms will reach a span of 10 inches! I'm not sure if this one is a Cranberry Crush, Fireball or Heartthrop. Aren't the names nice? Anyway, I'm going back again and enjoy this flower because of its huge and glossy delicate beauty.
and this is from the next day.....a newly opened bud..
