    Hi gardeners, :sunflower:

    Does anyone know what plant this is. I'm not entirely sure I like it, but it's growing strongly in my garden and about to flower.

    If anyone could let me know, that would be great.

    Happy gardening,
    Fin

      They grow at Dungeness.

      I posted an image of a butterfly on one in July 2014 taken in Dorset. Common Blue on Common Fleabane

        I never call anything common. They are all individuals. :)

          Thank you everyone, I've had it for years and never knew what it was.
          If it's good for insects it can stay - it's quite pretty anyway.

          Many thanks
          Fin

            I never knew it grew locally, but his afternoon I discovered I'd been walking past a patch of Common Fleabane on the edge of my village for years and never noticed it before.

            What attracted my attention was a load of Small Tortoiseshell butterflies all over them
