Their flowers may well have flat petals, petals that do not open far and are formed like a bell, or petals that open up past horizontal and bend backwards (are reflexed). The bouquets may possibly happen only at the recommendations of the plant or all along the size of the stem. The flower shade may differ from multi-coloured hues of yellow, blue, pink, and white. Generating classes from this large variation is tough but the species have a tendency to clump into with each other with specific groups of these qualities.
