Just found one of my Gaillardia's blooming differently.

Usual blooms go like this:

But this one, is blooming like they have been fused together.

Looks like a fasciated bloom. Some can be real strange depending on how they are fused. Gaillardia seems to do it more often than some other flowers.

I agree. I have Gaillardia and Echinacea do that all the time. Always interesting to see.
