I love the paper-like quality of the petals. I love how all of those petals can emerge from such a small space. I love the colors. I love the long stems holding the flower to the sky ... little hairs covering it. I love how the unopened bud will bow its head while the flowering one has its moment in the sun. I love the shape of the seed pods. I love the way the seed pods are channeled, the way they release their seeds. I bought some more to plant. Some from last years crop have disappeared from the garden.
