Deformed Plants?
By Amanda Mitchell


June 25, 2012

I live in the Bear Valley area. We have been noticing, the past few weeks, that some of the wild buttercups in our yard have extra petals. Not too concerning. However, today my children found a two-headed dandelion in the yard. We have never seen this before.

Would you happen to know if this is normal or not? Should we report this to anyone? Has anyone else been running across plant deformities in the Ketchikan area?

Attached are some pictures from today.
