One for the Weirdness Chronicles

The stunted growth on this spanish foxglove (digitalis parviflora) is strange in and of itself because it hasn't been treated any differently than the other 11 I bought at the same time, from the same place. The rest of them are happily throwing flower stalks at least 2 feet in the air, while he's sulking.

The really weird part, though, is that he's still trying to put out little blooms in spite of not having a stalk to loft them high. One for the Weirdness Chronicles over at Garden Voices?

That is one very strange and sulky-looking foxglove. Could it be the soil? Perhaps there was a worm in the bud- that happened to one of my sunflower and prevented the large top bloom from forming.
