I live in N.Z and I love taking pictures of flowers, plants & Nature. So I thought I'd create a wee picture patch for everyone to enjoy them too.🐦🌻

I've never seen a double headed flower before! All the others on the plant are single headed except this one! Love how different it is! ☺💛 #gerbera #twoflowerheads #oddbutpretty #different #courtyardgarden #st3ph-mygarden 🌱

Its very interesting, and a lovely effect. I have had some flowers come up like that before. Its a condition called ‘Fasciation’, a disorder which can cause misshapen stems (often flattened and wider) and misshapen flower heads like two joined together. Some plants species are quite prone to it. Not something you should worry about though, sometimes caused by genetics, other times by a little bit of pest or physical damage earlier in year. It may never return, as it can be random 😊 #fasciation

Wow that's very interesting @richard.spicer.7906 It's the first time I've ever come across it and it certainly does look very different but I like it, it gives the plant a little difference compared to everything else 👍😃

Yes, they can be quite appealing, always interesting to see what effects it brings 😄
