    OMG!

    That has to be one of the coolest I've seen. It is most alien looking.

    Kind of like some strange amoeba with feeding hairs...

    most unusual colouration... could it be a flava form of primulinum?

    the picture is top rate by the way, love the details like the hairs popping out from nearly every edge of the flower!

    Jmoney might be able to identify it for you. It looks familiar in shape (short twisted, hairy petals) just not in color. It is cool! I wish it was mine!

    What an unusual color. Its remarkable in the lack of strips and dots.
