    Question another (very unusual) wild flower

    Looks very simlar to an ornamental onion my mum used to have but much much smaller the flower head is about the same size as a 2p and there was a small patch of about 30 on one of the headlands past the castle
    If its profound what was the name of the golfer and what did he find?

    Whats the leaves like.........because the flower looks like something which has come up in my garden from a seed packet of cottage garden flowers (none of which were named)?

    Default Not an onion!

    Hi, Count.

    Onion individual flowers are star-like. This might be Devil's-bit Scabious (Succisa pratensis). I need to see the whole plant rather than a close up of the flower head to be sure.
