I have a Patio Rose and today have noticed that there is a bunch of leaves appearing at the centre of the rose. I have never seen this before.  I wondered if the seeds are growing inside the flower.  The petals are still fresh and healthy.

Seems as though this is not so unusual! Probably a mutation.

This will be a form of proliferation Sylvia
