New Zealand Burr

Observation - New Zealand Burr - UK and Ireland. Description: Discovered quite by accident and really unexpected today. Long stems with a wonderfully strong and very defined burr. I don't think this is the cultivar Blue Haze but maybe an escape from a flower pot. I do not recall flowers but remnants can be seen in
