    I know the leaves as I have it too - something like a centaurea/knapweed? Came up in my random flower bed!!

    Changed my mind! Is it salsify? https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/grow-y...tables/salsify

    You’re brilliant VC - salsify it is.
    Now my friend will (mistakenly!) think that I’m brilliant too.
    Thank you

    Goats beard? ..... I think that is salsify!

    When it goes to seed it has a lovely big clock head.
    Remember to save some!
