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.
Pink linaria, the stem has completely branched.
Helleborus niger seed head.
Has anyone else any pictures of fasciated flowers that they can upload.?
I know one or two have been on recently.
I'm not sure Fidget but lovely pics. I will go and have a look now, if they are made by 'mistakes' then I probably have
Arlenes double arum
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.
Found one from last year, Much the same this too.
There was an amazing photo in gardeners world magazine a few years ago of an echium pininana that had 'fasciated'. Will try to find it...
Sorry, the dahlia above is a cosmos
Not the photo from the magazine, but it's similar, what a beast!
I almost want to stroke it.
Ha! It would probably bite your hand off!
I'd be willing to risk it.......what a beauty
Looks like something from the Muppets.
Is this one? Like an idiot I stood on it and snapped it off the plant.
