Nikki says:
The plant has been at the side of a small path leading to a field for at least ten years. It dies down completely in Winter. The specimen has multiplied many times over on the same spot. Bees are very attracted to this Cirsium. They seem to become inebriated by the nectar and are often seen motionless in the flower heads in Summer. The flowers are quite aromatic.
