A real nice lady called me and said she was getting rid of her flower bed I could have anything I wanted it If I came and dug it up. Well she called this the big bird plant. Said it has a hugh yellow bloom that looked like big bird. What you are seeing here is the seed heads. Anybody have any ideas? This plant is 3 years old.

Could it be Centaurea macrocephala?
