Common knapweed (Centaurea nigra)
Common knapweed (Centaurea nigra)
Knapweed is a wild flower of meadows and other grassland habitats. It can also often be found growing on roadside verges and is a source of good quality nectar, supporting bees, butterflies and beetles. Its seeds provide food for many birds. In days gone by eligible young women would put a plucked knapweed flower in their blouse. When as-yet unopened florets began to bloom it would tell her that the man of her dreams was near.
