This is my first bloom from Kronprinzessin Viktoria von Preussen. It opened yesterday and took my breath away. I wish I could make a 3-D picture that shows how very full the blossom is. This is the loveliest flower I have ever grown. I planted two this year, and I had gotten some mixed feedback about how well she would do in my climate. I'm hopeful that the plants will flourish, but can I just say that if they turn out to be runty, temperamental weaklings it will all be worth it if I can have just a couple of these wonderful blossoms each year.
