 ???
This must be the smallest hippie I own - just a fraction larger than a daffodil (3") - it is a mini.
A very much treasured gift given to me for my birthday
 

The stem on the scape is 10" which makes the full scape 13"




It is a white semi double with a rather exotic throat which has a burgandy and gold corona deep inside a green throat


The bloom is slightly cupped and has two distinct burgandy feathered pencil lines in the upper petal segments.



 Diamante dust covers the surface of this beautiful bloom.


The bloom is fragrant and the only disappointing feature  being the scape only has two blooms.
But maybe next year as it is more established hopefully it will develop four.
 :woohoo:
Never regret anything that made you smile.
