Rosette

I have never seen thapsus with a rosette that 'pointy'. Quite striking. It was apparently wild, I assume?

Mullein rosette

I remember the first time I discovered my first Mullein's (3 in a fairly close group) they looked exactly like this. I was convinced I had found something very 'exotic'. Only later did I find out what they were.

Mullein

Yes wild... on rough land mined by rabbits..... It was growing in a cluster of fairly conventional looking siblings.
