Morgana - I really don't know what's happening with this shrub. I've never seen a bloom like this one before - it's a bloomin' mystery!

The only other thing I can think of has the 2 tone colour over taken the white for some unknown reason.

Thanks Autumn - it was strange seeing this lovely colour in amongst all the pink blooms. There's been a couple more since, so maybe this will happen again next year!
