This plant was popular with around 5 species of bumblebees but I don't what it is.
No interactions present.
Uni. of Leicester Botanic Garden, has a large clump by the name Cephalaria tatarica, the seeds don't have the papery remains like Scabious; the seeds are shot out of the cushion as it dries out, with the seed slightly 'green' so awkward to collect.
- the apparent sprawling habit fooled me (and the rarity of giant scabious, but this might be a cultivated plant for all I know).
I bought seeds of this plant over 25 years ago and have several very large clumps of it some grow as high as 10ft,most of the ones on the carousel are ob's I have put on,someone has probably thrown it out the garden.
I would say cultivated,with a background of loop topped park rails, Echinaceae & clumps of what may be ornemental grass, it may be an over-grown herbaceous border or one of those new naturalistic borders, where plants are growing through grass & cut duwn like a flowering meadow.
Just noticed it is down as white and it is not it's a pale yellow and it fades once opened,to collect seeds I pick the put a paper bag over the heads and hang them by the stem and the seeds fall into the bag.
