I saw this plant/flowers in a local nursery. RUINED I thought they were by some genetic aberration, after all all these flowers are from the same plant. Have you seen this plant? Know this flower? Is this an aberration? Or do they really grow like this with mixed blooms. It remains a mystery to me.
WOW! And you captured it beautifully!~
Beautiful shots but I can't answer your question. Good take on the theme.
Hmm... some generic problems I guessed but no matter how handicapped those flowers are, they are still beautiful :)http://crizcats.blogspot.com/
I like your ruined mystery! Great macros too.
Sometimes plants and flowers grow in this special way; it is called "cristate". You often fiend cactus as cristate. "Digitalis" in my garden is flowering this way every year.There is something written in the german "wikipedia" about this anomaly.
Very interesting! I don't know the answer to the mystery either but your photos are wonderful. Happy weekend!
Very interesting looking flower!!! great take on the theme.
I have just discovered this blog of yours. Your flowers pictures are superb!

Different looking. I don't know about your plant. Good take on the theme!
Wow - what great shots! I have never seen these flowers.Happy Weekend.
I'm not gonna say what it reminds me of!Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Enjoy the weekend!joyA Pinay In EnglandYour Love CoachI, Woman
wow! that flower is very amazing. :) nice pictures.
That's a sunflower right? Love the vivid sunny color! I haven't see any sunflower with that sort of "defect" though.Happy hunting!
I don't know what they are - maybe a genetic mix of two somethings? Great shots, though.
Never seen anything like that before -- amazing!
Wonderful... didn't know they had so much difference among the same kind of flower !
I guess the one bloom just wanted to be different
Pretty sunflower...Good choice for the theme...Happy weekend.
Very strange "ruin" indeed. I doubt it is intentional. It's as if it suffered some trauma while the flowers were developing. Have a good weekend.
I don't have a clue about this flower, but it's beautiful!
Lovely. How interesting that something beautiful can be ruined. Great choice for The Hunt.
Hmmm, they look like squashed sunflowers? :)
They look very peculiar. Lovely photos though.
Very pretty blossom but I have no comment on the strange differences.
ruined yet still a beauty.....happy weekend!
Amazing shots, very interesting flowers.
Your pictures are just stunning, wonderful blog!!
Love these photos. Interesting shots. Great take on the theme this week.
One of the most beautiful ruins I've come across today! :)
That's a great interpretation of this week's theme. You caught it nicely. I played, too. Happy weekend!
That's interesting. I also wonder how they came out that way.
