European origine. A common weed in the part of Netherlands where I live, in other parts rare. It loves a sandy alkaline environment. The stems, leaves and flowerheads are very hairy. The leaves are lance shaped and about 3-8 cm long. It has small (3 - 5 mm) pale blue flowers. Overhere it is called "kromhals" ..translated "curved/crooked neck"...because the flower tube is curved.
