Bloom on crested plants

There is still a fasciated form of Fritillaria imperialis in cultivation, Fritillaria imperialis Slagzwaard.
And there is the fasciated Leucojum vernum that is touted as a double.
This seems to have various combinations of floral parts. I don't grow it....
Narcissus 'Bowles Early Sulphur' is semi fasciated.

" Crests are common on lilies (lily people call them fasciated stems). In lilies, the crested stems carry many more blooms than normal stems. 
> I've got several crested stems in my lily patch right now - I'll post some photos later and you'll see what I mean. 
> In lilies, since the cresting occurs at the tip of the annual stem, it does not carry over from year to year. 
> I've seen photos of crested Fritillaria imperialis, and in the Gottofer Codes there is an image of what appears to be a crested tulip and a
crested Lilium candidum.. "
