Spotted this week at Filnore Woods. These Hogweed plants can go on flowering right into winter. Although they are very attractive to look at, their perfume is . . . errrm . . . unusual. Like something from a farmyard.
Even when the flowers have died, the seedheads command attention, like sculptures, as seen below against a dark backdrop of hawthorn. .
So many seeds per plant. This is why we have so much of the stuff.
