lower petals have silvery white bases running upward toward the petal centers. The remainder of the petal is light orange-red, darkening toward the margins. The upper apex petals are elongated, thin, sometimes split on the ends to give a fluffy double appearance. Stamens have modified into these strange upper petals, reducing the number of functional stamens. Upper petals are a lighter pink-red. Flowers are environmentally affected and can vary in form on the same plant and from one flowering season to the next.
