This is the first time I've seen this many blooms on this one.
A seedling that I've waited a long time to see bloom.
It isn't a very large bush yet.
Five blooms open. More buds to follow.
Formal double; petals so beautifully arranged.
The previous 6 pics are all the same cluster of blossoms
from different views.
These last two are Blood of China, here for many years.
As the weather gets colder, they become more scarlet.
This blossom newly open today.
This one was opening on Monday: you can see the stamens today.
