These Gorgeous Superstars have an unusual hue, somewhere between a Blushing Damsel and Scarlet.( Do you recall the classic Gone with the Wind ? )

The fallen petals take a leaf out of Reality and reveal that nothing is Immortal, not even SuperStars.

All are Super Stars

A close look unveils the multi-petaled Superstars and their undulating  and enchanting colours.

The buds, half blooms and full blooms are all SuperStars.

Do keep your distance and do not Touch them as they are fragile and the delicate blooms will simply fall apart at the slightest touch.
