Description
The wig knapweed (Centaurea phrygia), flowering from the end of June to the middle of August, can be found in meadows, sparse woods, logged-over areas, shrubberies, at roadsides and on baulks, growing to 40-100 cm from the ground and sporting its conspicuous violet flowers at the top of ramified stalks. The reference to Phrygia in the Latin name is not to its origin but to its delicately frilled ray flowers reminiscent of the finely embroidered and frilled Phrygian dress. Estonia lies at the northwestern edge of its distribution area; in Latvia the wig knapweed is regarded as relatively rare.
