doing math in the garden

what goes into choosing a flower ?  the questions range from ‘how pretty is it,’ to ‘what is the baggage that comes along with pretty,’ to ‘how much pretty is it ?’  there can be more yet this is enough for tonight.  some flowers are stunningly pretty to the point that any other questions are just blown away.  some flowers have good baggage and others have not so good baggage that can tilt the considerations one way or the other.  or pull in opposite directions.  this flower may have a little of that two direction pull.  it just came out of the seedling bed, a place where there is a bit too much shade and all of the plants reach and lean towards the sun.  and this one may have a reason to lean.  it has a bloom count not often expected on a first year bloom, about 45 buds.  to put it in a few words – lots of potential and some watching and waiting to see how it plays out.  so enough words, pictures already.
