Great substance, the color is very saturated, and has an amazing, sparkly shine! It's my first year with Apollodorus so I can't judge performance yet, but so far, she's had plenty of buds-considering, and has consistently opened well w/great shape/color(&all have stayed well into evening hrs) I posted pics above -they came real close, but just don't do her justice!(seems a touch more blue-ish than pics)
