My brother sent me this picture of a conjoined twin flower. Pretty neat! I have seen this before but not very often.

I've had tons of gerbera with it and one tomato plant even! Gerbera I had two joined, 3 joined, and one 9 heads on one stem, here's a photo! http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/24008019

I have a joined golden zucchini in my garden right now -- waiting to see how it progresses (flowers should open tomorrow or the next day)!

I don't know if this sort of thing is happening more often or if I'm just looking for it! My Hardy Hibiscus Luna Pink Swirl has done it.

I've got plenty of hardy hibiscus and never seen that. Wonder of you save seeds if offspring will carry the trait?

From what I know, only fraternal twinning is hereditary. I did hand pollinate so I'll know by tomorrow or the next day if it took.
