I noticed part 24866 in one of our sets from TLG:

This looks a bit different to me. Has this part been redesigned?

After a bit of research, it looks like this is a new part for 2018.

The part that it is likely replacing is the old flower petal with stud connections:

Old:old petal New:new part

The new part has 5 petals instead of 4, and they are shorter so that they don't collide with neighboring parts at any angle. New Elementary did a writeup on the new flower parts that includes an image to highlight this:

old vs new spacing

Both parts include the interior flower stem connector so that they can be used with either the new or recently redesigned flower stem.

  • It looks good from above but bad from all other angles. The petals simply aren't proportional to the plate height, which is a shame. IMO the trade-off in favor of functionality is rather poor. – LegoSonicBoy Jun 11 '18 at 16:12
  • I see your point. They look particularly stubby when compared to the original flower petal. – jncraton Jun 11 '18 at 16:20

    On the bright side, having more flower molds means you can mix and match them to create more diverse gardens and even bouquets :) – LegoSonicBoy Jun 11 '18 at 16:22
