They are one of the most beautiful multifloral hybrids.

for some reason I can only post low quality photos, and they do not do these blooms justice. There will be 5 blooms on 2 stems.

Love the extreme striping! I have a seedling of this. I think I have a couple years before blooms tho. How wide is the spread from leaf tip to leaf tip of a mature fan?

top of top petal to bottom of bottom petal - at least 5 inches.
the tendrils - at least 6 inches. They are amazing.
the width - at widest point - at least 1 1/2 inches.
These were with a ruler, so not "scientifically" accurate

Holy crap! That is huge! I guess I am going to be waiting for a while. Just as well as I'll need to clear out space for it
