Flecked in a large flower. In most cases, there are extremely small stripes alone which do not stand out very much. However, stripes often become big and sometimes a considerable part of a flower, or even a whole flower, can become colored. This is variegated (or parti-colored) flowering. Horticulturally, this is called Siguresibori (late autumn rain pattern).
