    Mericlone of the smaller upland variety. First blooming of a seedling I am growing. Sadly, this one is missing a petal but I'm hoping for better blooms next time!

    Sorry but either the bud has thrips or the plant is virused.

    I agree with Halloamey. Treat for thrips (use a systemic), hope it blooms better next time. If it does not improve and continues showing color breaks, toss it - it is virused. Sorry Clint.
