I had done a post about a week back about some weirdo's in my collection. I did a little online research and found an excellant page that explains several mutations and why/how it happens. Mutation is quite normal and on a plant with several normal flowers that one weird one can easily be explained by normal crossing. I thought it was something I'd fed them...it's actually just something they all do from time to time apparently.
go to the Royal Horticultural Society ( news ) and do a search for "The Marvel of Mutations" article. It's got pictures of each mutation that are very helpful.
