Peloric

Peloricism is the term given to the Chance Mutation where the upper petals or lower half of the sepal petals take on the colors, patterning or structural characteristics of the labellum (the “lip” petal of the orchid). “Feathering” or “Splashing” is when there appears to be a different coloration in streaky patterns from the tips of the petals.
