Fascinating Fasciation

By Paul2032

The beauty around us seems endless, but sometimes Mother Nature outdoes herself in creating plants and flowers that are unique and that may, depending on your tastes, seem even more beautiful. Fasciated flowers have something that could be described as a little extra and could be considered either gorgeous or grotesque.

My Blanket Flowers are prone to do this, too. When the picture of the Fukushima "mutated daises" was going around the internet a few months back, I had to laugh. People know very little about nature and science these days.

I find plant/flower Fasciation to be facinating! (pun intended) Green Grin! I just added two photos to the database of my Firespike flowers showing fasciation.
