Very interesting. It is very hard to describe flowers. I love being able to see the handwriting as well as the actual flower Palmer is describing. Just a slight critique: I wish he had described the ruffley edge of the corolla. Thank you for this post.

It is really amazing picture, revealing the superlative beauty of this plant in every aspect. Your Art History professor will definitely be proud of you!
