But what is it? It looks nice, doesn't it? Don't know where they came from, haven't seen these earlier.

LOL well I did have an inspiration of what this might be earlier this evening but I was completely wrong!

Sorry Evert, I'll have a look for this but I really don't think I'm going to find the answer.

Forgot to say my idea was a Tragopogon species but I'm sure that is very wrong.

Could this be Bidens frondosa?

Hmm, it could be. Is that bidens a tall plant? These are just small ones, about 20-35 cm tall. I think this could be one I know, but don't know the name... =) We'll see when it "goes to seed".

These can grow to be quite tall Evert, but we have to bear in mind the climate you live in. It can affect the size of some plants, as you say we shall see whan it goes to seed.

Baa, now I really think it is the Bidens... I found some of these, much bigger in another place in our garden. They don't look so nice anymore. :/ I think I'll pull them all up.
