Yours are single type bloom. There are many series and cultivar on this species, there are always new ones produced.
Florist industry use controlled environment chemical, fertilizer, hormones, retardant etc.. to create dwarf, compact plants with "superb" leaves and blooms..(that's why we love and keep buying them)... then you grow it by your self, with different condition --> resulting different results... still pretty and more natural looking.
But, if we don't buy new one who will support hybridizer and grower.. I love both. (natural or extravagant)
