Any ideas on this? It's growing wild in the sun near woodland in Sweden.
Many thanks in advance!
looks like something created in photoshop
Did you take this picture yourself Tetricus? If you did and are therefore certain that it is not a fake, it may be worth taking a high resolution image down to a really good plant nursery. You appear to have stumped the forum.
The shame is that the enlarging facility on here does not work, it says there is an error. Looking at the leaves I think there are two plants together there.
I think it's one plant and the purple 'flowers' are bracts. No idea what it is though!
if you click on the picture when it goes to what should be the enlarged version and there is onley a little square icon in the top left corner look at the bar at the top of the page where it says Gardenersworld,com/forum etc etc click on that and backspace untill you reach JPeg and then hit enter it will then show the enlarged image
When I try to enlarge the photo I only get some weird secret code. Am I doing something wrong?
looks like the blue colour could be the new leaf growth (like pieris with new red growth then changes to yellow as it ages) still dont know what it is though x
think I found it .....Wood Cow-wheat....melampyrum nemorosum.... on a wildflower web site for sweden x
...credit where it's due Rhoda, that was marvellous detective work...
