In my garden, I´ve got some great Strelitzia reginae plants, up to 2m high. This year they really surprised me, by displaying a couple of double flowers, one extra shooting from the back of first one!

After a lot of Googling, I finally found a notice saying that this is not uncommon. Just the same, I´ve never seen that before.
