My Coneflower Conundrum
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.
I’m enclosing a side view as well. Is this normal?

Hydrangeas have captured my attention lately. They are showy, happy flowers that have the power to change color depending on what type of soil they are grown in.
