  2. Beautiful. To add to your collection of names (I love learning new words): in German, they are call “Stiefmütterchen” = little stepmothers (apparently it has to do with the lower petal, i.e. the stepmother, overlapping the daughters which in turn overlap the upper petals, i.e. the stepdaughters).
