Green Thumb Sunday - name this plant!


Well, I thought this was a volunteer wild rose, until it 'bloomed'. Any guesses? You can see the leaves and structure make it look like a rose???????

my (incredibly uneducated) guess is a thistle. :)

yeah, that's what the top looks like, but the leaves look like roses...

Not a clue, but I'll agree that it looks like a rose except for the bloom.

It's quite attractive whatever it is! I enjoyed your musings on compost. It's amazing how it just happens, isn't it? A garden miracle LOL

Muum, I thought I would answer your question about mullein. Mine is in mostly sun and the soil is well drained. They usually end up looking dead into the hot summer but it's well worth growing when it blooms.
