Weird plant

I noticed this in one of the borders today - does anyone know what it is?

It has a partial leaf which makes me think of echinacea, but it can't be can it...?image

    Hmm, maybe - not a plant I'm familiar with so I'll look it up...

    Its about 3" high and feels kind of bristley...

    Thanks sanjyimage

    Hi Edd,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just thinking though, osteospermum and zinnia are half hardy I think and I haven't planted any out...

    If it's deformed could it be an echinacea? I had some that always got eaten and I don't think ever flowered and I put them in that border to dieimage

    Looks like an echinacea to me.

    They never did well enough for me to recognise but if it looks like one to you Papi Jo, I'll just ignore it. 

    One of the other undead has just a small brown cone as a flower and I don't recall buying that. Think they all need stamping on.

    Thanks for your helpimage
