Hi there,

I'm new here and just wondering if there are any experienced gardeners out there who might now what this plant might be that is growing in my front garden? It might even be a pretty weed for all I know! It is a rented property so not much gardening was done prior to us moving in and I'm now trying to work out what we've got.

Thanks for any help :)

Looks like Centaurea montana - "knapweed" I think is its common name. It's not a weed as such but can be thuggish in a small space. Very pretty while in flower - but scruffy as the flowers start to fade and fall over.

Thanks Carol!

Hi Kelly, here is Centaurea montana in Shoot. Certainly looks like it to me!

All the best
