RE: strange and BIG

i dont know how to spell this but it is called fasciation, some times a stem comes up flat and has tons of flowers on it, this happened to one of my hosta plants one year

RE: strange and BIG

I have it happening in my garden as well and did some research. Apparently it is caused by damage done to the tops of the bulbs by various means (slugs, frost.....) causing the stems to flatten. It happens in a variety of plants and woody stems.

I can't wait till mine blooms, I photograph mine (see the fasciation of lily post on this forum) every couple of days to chart the process.

I think these flattened stems would make amazing flower arrangements, only one stem in a squarish vase:)

I have it happening to lesser degree to several other asiatic stems but not the neighboring orientals!?

Isn't nature grand!
