Pros don't have much time to faff around, that's true

Some of them don't even have time to think about what they're doing before they act.

Just the one would make a genetic mutation  Then the next generation would show if it persisted.

I think I'll be waiting til next year to find out though, all the rest are behaving in a normal digitalis manner, lots of leaves, no sign of a flower spike.

My money is on fasciation

It looks like fasciation fidget, the stem is a bit flattened, though not extreme, and there are lots of buds all squashed up together at the top.
