|SDB 'Golden Ring', T. Johnson, 2011|
As the picture shows Tom Johnson describes a precise band of gold around a mahogany fall.
Here's what it looked like today in my garden:
It's clearly much paler than the picture above. Is this a case of misrepresentation? Not at all. The color of the bloom can be affected by soil, seasonal variations and the first bloom may not be the best. It's obviously a lovely flower and I have to comment on it's tiny nature. The entire bloom is about 4 inches wide and only 6" off the ground.
Let's see what next year brings!
