Fasciated flowers, where the appearance is of twins or more, are caused when the growing ti is damaged at some point, maybe by something as simple as an aphid bite.

 Please post any photos  that you have taken of any fasciations in your garden.

Normally the fasciation is only for the one season and the plant reverts to normal afterwards. However we have a Veronicastrum where the flowers have been fasciated like that for the last three years. I keep meaning to take a piece of growth and see if it happens then too.

Will have to go find a picture for you.

Sorry....no photos.....I have seen it several times on Foxgloves and the double Strawbs seem to occur reasonably often too.
