I've been out and taken a pic of my Liatris and it doesn't look like your plant Vic. I'll post a pic later when I've uploaded them.

Well done finding that thread VS! It does sound like a weed then, id still be tempted to keep it isolated and grow it on, just for curiosity

Cheers KEF, yes, I really don't think it is a liatris. Also this plant has a fuzzy stem and smooth leaves and liatris seem to be the other way around. There are similarities though.

I am growing it on out of curiosity Bekkie; at least to confirm it's Edd's weed. I've potted it up and it's sat next to the bins I won't let it seed though... Grows freakily fast...but it's possible I fed it you know - can't believe I didn't notice it was a different plant

Do u think it could be cannabis???
19/07/2014 at 19:40

No definitely not cannabis - oh not that I would know just guessing

The locals would have harvested it by now if it was, along with any 'scrap' metal I might be foolish enough to leave unsecured. Oh and my Hallowe'en pumpkin. Those kids didn't come back

Didnt know you lived by me VS!

Why was that you I chased up the street?

I'm pretty sure Edd's right, Conyza Canadensis, grows like mad and seeds like mad. I have a sand school for practising dressage and last year it was full of it. Needed several goes of glyphosate.

No, but we got the same little bu##ars it seems! Am giggling at the thought of you chasing kids up the street after your pumpkin
I did get approached by a kid who asked me if i wanted a rabbit????
