This was one of my first hybrids. When it first opened I thought... WOW! I knew
I had to have a special name for this special flower. Nothing came to me. It was
a few years later that I learned of Archangel Metatron, the Scribe of the Universe
and Keeper of the Akashic Records. His symbol is known as Metatron's Cube,
and within this symbol are all the components of Sacred Geometry. It is shaped
like the Merkabah -- a star tetrahedron that looks like a three-dimensional Star of
David -- that is the Vehicle of the Soul. Metatron's colors are shades of violet.
When you look at this flower, its most striking feature is this dark purply
six-pointed star bursting out from the center. So instead of going with "Metatron's
Cube" for the name, I went with "Metatron Starburst."
