Size of flower to Helenuim sahin early flower

Hi 

just a quick question. I purchased some Helenuim sahin early flower plants early this year. I am quite surprised how small the flowers are on this perennial. Could anyone confirm the mature size of the flower for this plant 

with many thank

    Slight guess, as too wet to check, but I would say about 1cm. diameter.

    Mine are 7cm across , I think they make it up with the amount of flowers you get.

    That's hugeimage

    Reminds me of a joke about why women can't park, but maybe a bit rude and needs gestures.

    Mine are in temporary pots as they were small plants when they arrived. The flowers average 30 to 40mm at present. I was expecting at least a 75mm diameter flower based on photos I have seen on websites. Slightly disappointed with that so they may not get in to my garden set up
