mystery killer flower

Post by kikicolon » Mon Aug 01, 2005 4:49 pm

i am trying to get a pic uploaded for this unidentified killer flower. It has purple spikes rather than petals and it is whitish pink inside and it seems to be bulbous or something. Does anyone have a clue?

kikicolon: It seems that you posted twin thread about your mystery flower ;)
IMO, it is a member of Mimosoideae, considering the discus-shaped receptaculum. But I have no idea what the species is..

If it is a thistle, try looking up Cirsium, Carduus or Onopordum (Compositae)

I think it looks like Centaurea. Well, I'm not very good at botany, please don't kill me if I'm wrong. :)
By the way, are you sure if it is a killer flower?
