Green-fingered Jean Lord has been left puzzled by a beautiful imposter amongst her daffodils.
Jean, of Lepton, planted bulbs in a garden trough last year but they didn’t flower.
This spring they have sprung into life – but one of them is a curious double-headed white bloom with a peach and yellow trumpet.
Jean said: “I planted what I thought was a normal packet of daffodil bulbs last year but they didn’t flower.
“This year this really unusual flower opened. There is just one stalk but two flowerheads. I’d love to know what it is or how it’s happened.”
Jean has cut some of the other daffodils and taken them indoors to see if they open into special blooms too.
A search on the internet reveals that multi-headed daffodils are not that unusual.
One expert explained that a four-headed daffodil had, in fact, four stalks which were fused together to look like just one.
Others say the flowers are just varieties of narcissus which come in many different forms and colours.
