A friend of mine photographed a plant in her garden which is 
very strange. It is a digitalis, but on
top of the plant there is a campanula-like flower, not at all 
looking like the others. Only the
colouring of the flower at the top is the same as in the ones 
below. Has anyone met a plant like this?
What sort of phenomenon is this?
