    They're just showing their parentage.   Quirky.   If you don't like it, just cut out those blooms.

  • Thank you for the response, I was just wondering and it’s not about liking it  :)

    I have chrysanthemum Nantyderry Sunshine, which is a nice clear yellow.  Last year it had a couple of branches that had flowers half the disk yellow and half pink, and this year it has one branch with fully pink flowers.  Keep what you like, cut out what you don't like as far down as you can get.  Personally while I like yellow and I like pink, I'm not so keen on both together :s.
