I like this flower.
......... Was expecting a black appearing flower….from photos….Not complaining but……
Don't cling too much on photos.....you know the laws of heredity......Only meristem propagated plants look exactly the same.

Given that everything I have read about this type of cross, you should be very impressed that you got a flower at all. Well done on your growing skills. Cool flower too.

very nice Rolfei. Ive never seen a 'black' one. Yours is as I would have expected (but better shape)

It’s a lovely looking flower and your 2 photos show exactly why what you see is not always what you get 😜
