I need help. Something is amiss in the Coneflower Garden. I had noticed one of the coneflowers was green. Literally green and wasn’t turning the lovely pinkish-purple color. I was fine with that, chalking off the anomaly as a new variety of flower I had rescued from development.

However, as summer has progressed the flower has not only remained green but is now grown mini-blooms on top of the existing bloom.

Any ideas?
