A much larger flower than expected. Been open about ten days so I think its through any petal/sepal twisting etc. Sure was nice the first couple days when the petals were completely flat. First bloom seedling.

The flower is brighter in person than in the photo, but I try to trust the camera and not mess with color adjustments.
