Looks like an Eryngium, Prickfoot on steroids! Anyone got any ideas?

  1. David Francis  VicFlora says Eryngium vesiculosum is quite variable in size, so this could just be a large specimen.

  2. Chris Lindorff  The bluish tinge to floral bracts indicates Eryngium ovinum.

  3. Chris Lindorff  Although, grant you that the plant otherwise looks like E.vesiculosum.

  4. Kevin Sparrow  It is growing in a wetland so ovinum is unlikely. It has been a very wet year by any standards so maybe it is a well developed vesciculosum but the other E v's nearby are all normal size and nowhere near advanced towards flowering. Thanks for your help guys.
