Galactites tomentosa   Boar Thistle I

Galactites tomentosa Galactites tomentosa leaves

This is a plant I see very often in the Mediterranean but wasn't expecting to see in the UK. It has been recorded recently only at one site in the UK near Bath but this site, close to Kew, is famous for strange foreigners so on reflection it isn't so odd.
