It has four petals, four stamens and two pronged stigma.
It is interesting. I have never seen it before.
Would the seeds carry the mutation?

RE: Do you like the Odd? Do you like the Weird?

is it just that one flower that is deformed, or is it all the flowers on the same bulb? Would be a cool mutation if all the flowers were the same. Maybe opening the door for a new variety of hipp!

Carol, I do think it's just an anomaly..just as conjoined twins are..

Here is my weird flower..but the color was great! And I just noticed for the first time..the stigma has two lobes just like yours..!
