A Freak Daisy

The tendency to variation induced in the progenitors of the Shasta daisy through hybridization, is manifested in a great variety of ways. Here is a specimen in which the ray flowers are multiplied in number, and some of them curiously altered in form. Such a specimen as this might become the progenitor of an altogether double Shasta, the ray flowers gradually supplanting the seed-bearing organs at the center of the flower.
