Bristly Oxtongue Helminthotheca echioides 

Surprising how weeds survive in spite of us. The contractors strimmed the whole plant down, now a fortnight later it has sprung back up from the roots. Even Culpeper could not find a use for this one but the flower and a couple of bristle protected buds are showing that it can survive even the worst that man can do.
