Knapweed

Hydrurga, my field guides show three different species of British or European Knapweed; Greater, Common and Brown. Unluckily, your Knapweed doesn't quite match any of them. It needs someone with more knowledge of this species for a positive ID. Regards

Thanks Beagle. In the end

Thanks Beagle. In the end Tiggrx came up with what I think is the correct identification, Cirsium pannonicum, a plant commonly found in meadows in eastern Europe, including Slovenia. It would explain why none of the Knapweeds quite matched.
