Very interesting flower that has developed, I had never seen before.
If it is repeated in the next few blooms you have done a good deal!

Hi gerd,
What is ELK ?
What does "shyowa" mean ?
That particular flower appear to be different from average ones ....
Don't be sad because you'll see it again and again !!!
That "shape" comes from a genetic feature that cannot be cancelled !! ;)
See you !!

Shyowa is the name of a Japanese era, from 1926 to 1989.
It is the period of Shyowa emperor's reign.

During the shyowa era a new asterias was developed in Japan and named Shin-shyowa kabuto ( New-shyowa asterias).
Shin-shyowa kabuto has thin yellow petals.
There was further development and created red petals also. (Akabana shin-shyowa kabuto)
I do not know the reason but the word "shin" is missed when it is called in English.

The gene of thin petals has been  transferred to myriostigma also.
Myriostigmas with thin yellow and red petals are existing.

I have never seen a horizonthalonius with thin petals.
