Interesting Linaria flower formation

Found an interesting form on this Linaria :O

Look to the center of the bud

anyone ever noticed this happen before, would be neat to have a full plant of those

I just saw my first Linaria last year on vacation. I would love to try growing it here. Can you tell me about it? Specifically, what temps germinate it best, how long does it take to bloom from seed, and about what temps cause it to die from heat?

I love your pictures.

It's a Linaria or "toadflax" and reseeds very freely :)

on another note, i just posted these because of the weird flower formation that 1 flower has..
