ON PICTURES: Although we try to represent the
flower color as accurately as possible, due the inconsistant nature
of computer monitors, and the various difficulties of digital photography,
the colors represented on our website are not always exact. Please
consider these pictures approximations, and give us a call if you
would like a verbal description of the flower.
