Happy viewing but you can see that the flowers are split in half and there are stamens sticking out of each side. Rather gutted as my farther bought me them both as a gift. First picture looks amazing and this one just looks well weird!!!

I wish I could but I am an iPhone user but will add a link to twitter. It's meant to be perennial and it grew from the sme base just lots more flowering stems. I will post firstly...

the pink one that has returned as it was last year and meant to be perennial

 

then I will post the pink that's meant to be white that has funny funny flowers. Really I am lost.

My white perennial foxglove with red spots and one flowering spike last year..... Has turned completely pink, multiple flowering stems but... There are stamens or anthers sticking out each side of the flower. And the flower is split in half. What the heck?!? Any clues???

I like them but not sure if they are high maintenance as last year I struggled with aphid or something black all on stems. But now having 456 bedding And my larger ones I have to do something with them.

My other half bought me a tray of plugs for £10 I potted up each one and then counted, 456 no idea where to set them as I'm full and no room for the larger dahlia! Wondering about poppin at my gate for sale, but how much for a tray of 6!!! Or a large dahlia in a big pot!
