SOLVED: strange flowering abutilon?

I was wondering if anyone here has ever seen this before. There are two flowers, back to back, sharing one stem. All the other flowers on the plant are "normal" one flower per stem blooms, although one flower does have more petals than the rest. What's up here? :-) Can anyone help with information? Thanks!

Too much hybridizing.. :}

Wow how strange!

I don't know what might have caused this but could it be a type of fasciation?

After looking up fasciation, I think that could be a definite possibility. There's a bud coming that looks like it will also be a double flower. Very strange but kind of fun too. Thanks, Baa and Evert!
