Xuan,

You most likely have a conjoined flower. It happens now and then. Yours is really beautiful!! My Tinkerbell did that this year to several of it's flowers. They weren't as pretty as yours is though...enjoy it!

Mine as well as yours has twice the amount of anthers and it appears that yours has one giant stigma where mine had two. I tried pollinating mine and they all failed. Yours appears to be put together neatly where as mine is not.

I must actually say its pretty stunning as the doubled flower seems to be perfectly symmetrical and reveals itself gorgeously
