Five evenly spaced sets of petals or leaves form each row of the flower. The shading from the darker centers to the lighter edges of the petals and the 2 colors of the leaves mimic the natural appearance. Colors may be changed to preference of stitcher if desired. Whole stitches are used in this design that could be used as a quilt block.
