Well, that's interesting. I've never had that on my bush. Smiling

This is the first time I've seen two distinct stamens.

I've got 2 stems, each with 3 buds on 1 stem! Rest of the plant is one bud per stem. Can't wait till they open!

That's really neat! Can't wait to see if the flowers are normal.
