Sanguisorba

Definitely not S.minor (or one of its varieties)?

Casting no aspersion

Casting no aspersion cicuta58, this is just to show how the novice, (me), gets confused. Fodder Burnet I am interested to read what further you can add.

New location.

My original given location was from memory, cicuta58's correct ID rang a bell, which had me looking up my botanical notes for 2009.

Many thanks to all who are showing an interest in my observations. The advice, tips, and key data are very helpful, and most appreciated

Sanguisorba

I must disagree with ophrys as I believe this is definitely Sanguisorba minor or Poterium sanguisorba in Stace 3. The alien Fodder Burnet seems to be the usual one in seed mixes as used in wild flower meadows. It differs in fruit characters and has more deeply toothed leaflets but the differences are subtle and not easy from a photo.

Disagree?

I think you mean 'agree', as I was questioning whether it was definitely not S. minor. In other words, I was pretty sure it was.
