Thank you so much. There's so much to learn.
Looks like CONJURATION to me. It blooms without horns more often than
it has them for me. Sadly, the inability to consistently produce
appendages is a hallmark of most SAs here. Often only the terminal bud
in a stalk is all that have them. Then some blooms mix them up on the
same bloom. A spoon on one fall, a horn on another fall and only the
beard on the third fall - that sort of thing. That's a trait that I
don't find agreeable. I don't mind them dropping off, but I don't care
for a mixture on the same bloom. The SA trait seems to have some
instability in the ability to produce the trait consistently. I
believe eventually there will come plants that will.
