Check out this loopy lupine plant. It grew, flowered, went to seed, and now has little lollipop balls of foliage growing above the stalks where the seeds are/were. The plant has turned into a topiary.
I'm sure there is a really good botanical explanation for this happening, but I haven't yet researched it. Is this 'normal' (though none of my other lupines have done this) or a freakish mutation? Please, you tell me.
