An exceptional enantiomorphy that has been studied genetically in plants (but not in flowers) are helically growing mutants of Arabidopsis (Hashimoto, 2002; Buschmann et al., 2004).
The most well known cases are enantiostyly or enantiomorphy. More subtle cases of asymmetry are those in which the symmetry planes of the different organ whorls are not congruent.

For Hesse's double is not, after all, the same thing as enantiomorphy, predicated on the presentation of two forms--hands, for example, or ears or crystals--that are both identical and reversed.
In Cyanella lutea (Tecophilaeaceae), a self-incompatible species, enantiomorphy together with a relatively small number of flowers concurrently open on a plant, presumably promotes outcrossing (Dulberger and Ornduff 1980).
But enantiomorphy in Senna corymbosa seems to diminish the effects of self-compatibility by partially reducing the contribution of geitonogamy to selfing.
