I have a delphinium that has a flower stem that seems to be different to the other plants, the stem is very thick and the flower seems to be distorted, does anyone know what causes it.




Fasciation I believe and I've had it in Delphiniums before but other things as well. I copied this for an wxplanation.
"While fasciation in flowers is usually a one-time occurrence, sometimes the fasciation is carried in the plant's genetic material so that it reoccurs from generation to generation"

Yep, fasciation. I've never seen it in a delphinium before, but its one of the plants on the 'more likely to happen' list. Some reading on the subject here

Thanks, hopefully it will grow back fine next year.
