Split Petal Knockout Rose

Found this beautiful bloom on a pink Blushing Knockout Rose. Has anyone seen a similar type bloom before? The color is split right down the middle of three petals?

Neat, but not unique.

Wow!!! I've never seen anything like that!!! So beautiful - wouldn't it be gorgeous to have the whole plant like that?!!
How cool - glad you showed this interesting flower.

Carol...glad you enjoyed it! I've seen reverting rose petals before, but have been unable to find a single image online of one split 50/50 like this. If it is not particularly "unique", I would love to see pics of other examples.
