    This Castilleja photo is actually C. hispida var. hispida, not C. miniata, which has entire leaves, a longer corolla beak, and linear-lanceolate, narrowly acute, almost acuminate calyx lobes.

    actually all flower petals are modified leave structures so in a sense, it is petals. This particular species is a prime example of how plants evolved to produce flower petals. Here you can see it in process.
