The pic shows the center of the flowers "oblong" instead of round. Only a few look like this. Is this common?

No, not common but it does happen sometimes that the centers are elongated rather than spherical. It would be interesting to know what causes the odd mutation. But I suppose it's like any other mutation - it just happens. :)

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
