A bush of … these bloomed over my shoulder at the conservatory in Chicago the other day. I liked the blossom because the ornamentation was specific to one petal with spillage onto the ones next to it. I was amazed to see asymmetrical patterning in nature. 

I'm not certain of the name of this flower, but it was beautiful in its lavender petticoat with the painted panel and numerous reaching tentacles.
