But I think it's still pretty. Elizabethan Age with only 2 falls.

Anyone have others that didn't come out just right?

As far as the TB's, I only seem to get an "odd duck" if they are too crowded on the stem. All the Parts will be there, but one side may be too scrunched -up to open correctly. Seems I do have some SDB's that throw an extra fall, sometimes...Arlyn

They're interesting when they do that. I love that orange beard.

I had to go out and look closer at mine. Only 2 standards. Is is weather or a fault in the chromosomes or what?

I think my was caused by a bout of frost after weather in the 70's. Made the bud a bit wonky, so I was sort of surprised it bloomed.

This one is weird because the other blooms were fine. Oh well...nature is funny that way.

Mine was the same Celia. The next bloom on Footloose was normal.
