Well this is the last of the PP fasciation pics, mind you I have 93...
I have pollinated the last bloom with GHA......it was a 10 pointer, 10 anthers and it's style was fused but it had 2 stigma..
Whereas the 2nd Bloom had 8 corolla teeth, 8 anthers and 2 styles, that one was dusted with Bruce's Pink.

I thought that you might like to see the fused styles with the 2 stigma...my apologies for such a poor pic, but it's almost the same colour as the corolla and I was struggling to reach....I had to tear away part of the corolla so I could see inside..
One thing that I found amazing was that the fused styles had twisted at the end, just like the fasciated branch.
Its so hard to distinguish....I hope that you can make it out...lastly the 3 flowers each at a different stage.
