Early-midseason blooming BOMB flowers are lavender pink, 17.75cm (7″) in diameter, upward facing, and average two per stem. Guard petals are rounded, ruffled, lightly notched, and average 6.4cm (2.5″) in width. High degree of fragrance noted. Flowers possess, on average, five very small, tomentose, cream-colored carpels with red stigmas of normal anatomy – more often, these are underdeveloped structures or absent entirely. Stamens are less than 1.25cm (0.5″) long, with uniformly yellow filaments. Petallodes are also present, linear and spatulate in structure. Larger petallodes display a streak of ivory over their lavender-pink coloration, with smaller petallodes being either lavender pink or ivory in color with approximately a 50/50 distribution.
