This JMG wont open the proper way it is so big the flower is ripped by the time its open fully.
But the colors of this JMG is wonderful it has a light blue glow on the edges between the violet and the white spokes.
It jumps out at you and stops you in your tracks.
I think it's a keeper.
The bloom is 6 1/2 inches.
