The Harlequin flower was discovered quite recently on the water planet HO-2781. The plant consists of four radial and thorned spines, with each spine growing a ball-shaped flower of a unique color. The overall look is that of a jester juggling, which is how it derived its name.
The ball-like flowers are bioluminescent and have a faint glow. The inhabitants of the world use them for guidance, memorizing their placement and color distribution, much like early navigators on Earth used the stars for guidance.
