this is growing in the field across from my house. does anyone know what it is?




I think this is a Centaurea - I may be spelling this wrong - I think someone posted a picture of one a couple of days ago - maybe you could look back through? :-)

It was me - that's a Centurea montana. How amazing to be growing in a field, Irish!

cool.... i wonder if i took a cutting would it be easy enough to grow?

Better to collect the seeds - they seed themselves around my garden like mad, so they must be easy to grow from seed, I would have thought.
