Weird petal form

At first I thought these flowers had been damaged, but then noticed that they're all like this on this particular seedling. Like a single-flowered Fimbriata or Grootendorst???
Not was I was shooting for, but it's always fun to see what surprises will show up when seedlings first bloom.

That’s really interesting. These are the first blooms? I wonder if they’ll change at all as the plant gets older. I’m pretty new with breeding, but I’m wondering whether this could be used in future generations to create a useful offspring.

For example, if the flower had more petals, I could imagine the randomly shaped petals would even put. Potentially, creating a really uniquely shaped rose. That reminds me a bit of Fireworks Ruffle. The petal shape is nothing like other roses, but they’re really striking. Your seedling has a different petal shape from that rose, so you could possibly get something really unique.
