I am watching the final stages of the flowers and the first corolla has dropped and left the calyx and the 2 styles just hanging, so I had to look up her skirt.
and there they were...... the next little surprise.....2 OVARIES....in the first flower that had 2 styles and 10 corolla teeth.

In theory there should have been 2, but in this circumstance, you can't be certain...It was either 2 styles from the one ovary or 2 ovaries...I'm glad that there are 2, so that makes a double size flower with double the corolla teeth, double anthers, double styles and stigma and now double ovaries....
What a little ripper this flower has been.....this is the clever girl..Pink Panther fasc #1
