Gorgeous. What do you do to these plants? Was it a foxglove that grew to 10ft?!?!?! What on earth are you feeding them?
Hi - yes it was me who had the giant foxglove last year , it eventually grew to 13ft 4 inches - sad measuring a plant but it was a beauty ?. Last year I had a three flower heads in one on a sunflower too.
Both the foxglove and the dahlia are in the same planter ( made from old scaffold boards ) - maybe it's the wood ?.
The dahlia has been in the planter for 2 years now. I leave them in over winter, only because I cannot garden at all when it's cooler as I get ulcers on my fingers in the cold. That said, they all seem to do ok and come back the next year. I have one, in a pot the comes back huge and healthy but has not produced any flowers this year. I wonder if it's needing a bigger pot.

Love the sunflowers, it's called Fasciation, There's a thread on here somewhere with other photos.
Fabulous fascinated sunflower barefoot I love all the mutant photos in the rogues gallery. Here's a link to the thread, if you'd like to add yours to the collection.
somewhat amazed now .. I have another mutant growing near the original flower. Must be a quirk in the plant, most of the flowers that have opened are normal ( there are many to open yet) but two strange ones. I do like them though, always liked odd things ?
Heres the link to the previous thread.
