Its just a little genetic glitch. There must be some pink in this poppy's past. Smiling

Hi... Welcome!


It's cool. I'd let it go to seed, collect the seed, and see what sprouts from the seed.

I had a snapdragon that had two different colors of flowers on the same plant. Not two different colors on the same flower. I thought that was mostly impossible, so I traced from flower to stem and both flowers originated from the same stem. Thought it might have been two plants tightly packed together. I so wish I had saved seeds from that plant.

You may be right but we have to see more plant. It has 4 spots because it has only 4 petals. Smiling
