My Hampshire Hoyden is now getting ready to cycle for the fourth time this year but I noticed these amidst the buds:
Thumb of 2013-05-28/OldGardener/537de0
Thumb of 2013-05-28/OldGardener/e50477
Thumb of 2013-05-28/OldGardener/ea07ef
They are only on one bloom stalk - all of the other scapes (and their buds) look normal. Could someone tell me what these are? Thank you

Any chance some sort of herbicide got on the scape or fan? I have seen mine resemble that when overspray from roundup gets on it. The buds get all odd shaped and even the color goes wonky.

Also sort of looks like what we get here in early season caused by tarnished plant bug, but usually the bud would have fallen off and not grown that large.

"smacks palm to forehead" Yes! Thrips!

Odd though to only have it on one scape.

do you have a good magnifying glass that you could look closely at a torn apart bud to see if there are insects in there or larva of any kind?

I had thrips for the first time earlier this year!!! I had no idea that this was indicative of thrip damage. I am just very glad that the damage has been limited to the one scape. Mystery solved - you're the best!!!!! Thank you!
