Well photographed. How did you picture both phases if a flower only lasts a day?

James~~

Thank-you! The blooms on my plant last up to 3 days...depends on heat, rain, how many flowers are open at a time...so not all last one day like Daylilies or something. I often have flowers in many stages and colors like in the photo, and since it always seemed especially pretty to me - I thought I would share... :-)

Glad you did.

(It is hot enough here I've only seen doubles last longer than a single day- pretty fried even then,)
Thanks.
