Dont know where these came from. Some (not shown) have gun-metal "silver" leaves: very striking: dont know where they came from neither!

All removed by Honorary rangers at this event - and several others this year, and follow-up events for the following three years, until all the seed banks were destroyed (these are stored on the plants so easy to eliminate).
