Every mechanical problem, the deformation is the result of forces acting upon every point of the volume under investigation. The case of patterned petal cell surfaces, can be understood as mechanical instabilities induced by such forces in combination of geometrical constraints and material properties. Such forces could be the result of internal processes or externally imposed. In this talk we present results of taking into account both cases to describe shapes found in petals which exhibit structural colour, we explore the relationship of such structures with those found in synthetic systems and how such relationships of could be exploited to to systematically study aspects of evolution and development in plants.
