This is an amazingly beautiful flower... i wish i had pictures! they were a favorite of a former "flame" of mine. The best of this kind have a deep red (FIRE) coloring at the edges of the bloom which sharply fades into a white (ICE) color at the bloom's base. A very nice contrast of colors, and makes for both a lovely bouquet or single-stem cut flower.
