Hallo,

This is my first post.

Has anyone seen a Foxglove like this before?

It is a second year self-set plant in my garden.

Thanks.

 Hi Eva, welcome

I've seen some odd ones but nothing like that. I wonder if all those buds will open the same

You are lucky eva, that's lovely.

22/05/2014 at 22:07

Wow that's great, hope you can get some seeds to try

Wow how lovely, as a child my aunt Edna used to tell me the spotted marks inside the flowers where the marks left by the bees after wiping three feet !!!!!

It looks like a case of fasciation to me

ahh what a lovely surprise! you'll have to name it after yourself Eva haha would be excellent if the seeds from it grew the same!

Thank you all for your comments.

Fleurisa, I had never heard of 'fasciation' so looked it up on Google and Google images and there are some amazing blooms. It is certainly worth viewing.

I am pleased that I asked the question.

I would take some seeds but perhaps they would not reproduce a similar flower?

I agree with Fleursa.

I googled it and apparently it rarely comes true from seed but can be reproduced from cuttings. I don't think that would work with foxgloves.

Lovely unusual thing.

So unusual.  Let us know if the rest of the flower buds open the same.
