Can anyone tell me if this is a weed or a plant, it is growing in a friends garden and he didn't plant it. He went on hols for 2 wks and when he came back this is what he found. It is about 18ins high and I thought at first it was corn until I saw the flower.I rather like it..

Look at Spritzhenry's question of 20th May. I think it's the same plant, in which case it's a purple salsify (goatsbeard)

I was just thinking the same Moon growe. I hope everyone who has it doesn't allow it to seed, the country could be covered in it next year!
