Funky Flower Bud

Funky Flower Bud

Sorry, I’ve looked and looked and I just cannot find out what kind of flower this is. I saw it in my FIL’s front flower bed and thought it was cool. Of course, he didn’t know what it was as it was something my MIL planted years ago so that knowledge passed along with her. If anyone knows, feel free to comment.

I love the translucence paired with the darker green and burgundy tipped veins because it is pretty. Then you get that “Grrr… Stay Away!” vibe from those thorny, spiky, hairy looking parts. Once it busts open, you get this delicately cupped white flower with a vivid fuchsia center. The whole plant was just kind of gangly looking, but the different pieces made it really cool and funky looking. For all I know, it is actually a weed.
