Excellent photo... This is a favorite color for me also Kell. Such a warm Summer feel about it. Can't wait to hear how DavidofDeLand describes these blooms. ;-)

HaHaHa Kin! They do look like that. I loved those propeller trigger toys when I was a kid...And to someone as farsighted as I am they could also appear on first glance as,..."A big ole' flaming flock of Four leaf clovers!" It is a great color and yet another new plant for me.
