    This clone starts out white and then blushes pink with time.

    Beautiful!

    I remember you asked if that one I posted not long ago was the 'Helen' clone. Mine does look a lot like your clone but the flowers on mine don't turn pinkish though.

    Interesting that your's doesn't change color. When I Google this clone, it seems that it has been use alot as a parent. I don't know if it has some great qualities as a parent or only that it has an award. But it is lovely, wish I could get more flowers on it.

    Yours is a wonderful clone and the petal width is fantastic.
    The petal width on mine makes me think 'Helen" probably is one of the parents.
