Echinopsis hybrid

This unnamed hybrid is a cross between two garden center plants, one red and one yellow-flowering.
Orange with reddish tips petals would be a nice feature by itself, but apart from it the flower came up with this very unusual shape/ It is fully developed in the picture, and somewhat chrysanthemum-like. Flower is about 4-5inches across. The plant is not yet fully grown, and there is a chance the new flowers will be a bit larger.
Surprises like that is a good reason to play with cross-pollination of different Echinopsis sorts.
