The fog of confusion is slowly lifting, and let's face it, that is a rare event. The first two pictures here are actually
M.x media 'Lionel Fortescue'. I'm going to leave them here for the sake of comparision.

They are arranged in a broad, flattened rosette as though some foolish person had sat on the flower head and squashed it
flat. No sign of the person remains of course. They might have been foolish but obviously not insensate.
