Answer: I too have seen this occasionally and am not sure of the cause but I suspect incomplete pollination and/or drought stress cause it. In my garden I have dead-headed the affected plants to keep them out of the local population seed strain but to be honest unfortunately I have not paid attention to see if plants rebloom the same way later in the season. I suppose my suggestion is to deadhead them and see of the next flush of bloom has the same problem. If so, I would replace the plants.
