The flowers are fully developed and exquisite.(flower size: 17cmx9cm) The flat outer petals are thin and soft and the inner petals are long and narrow, tidy and even. The petals are slightly indented, a few stamens are among them. A late flower breed with plenty of beautifully arranged flowers, Jing Yu is a truly improved variety
