Rosa 'Yves Piaget' opening up

The bud of a Rosa "Yves Piaget" has a lot of work to do. It may contain more than eighty petals that all need to be unfolded while they are tightly arranged!
It is a process that takes a good amount of time to put the flower 'into place' as it unfolds the petals in a structured way: by sections, to make the work feasible. It is truly wonderful to follow.
