The flowers are about 4"-5" so they aren't incredibly large. They are produced in abundance however and lightly fragrant.

The flowers are sort of a mixture of creamy peach, pink and ocassional magenta. Any orange color description could only be described at distance but it isn't really a trate to buy this cultivar for. It is more soft pink/cream than any other tone. I would recommend seeing this in flower before purchasing since the sum can be quite expensive. I have decided to remove the plant and gift it to a family member as I am not impressed enough to keep it. Bartzella so far as the best Itoh worth buying to me.
