Comments Copper petals slowly fade through apricot toward buff as they unfurl around high-centered clusters of blossoms. There is a special informal loveliness to this flower and the plant that produces it that shows in virtually every photo of it. Let's hope it captures enough hearts to stay in circulation for some time.

BTW: it would look great with Penelope, Chanelle, or French Lace.
