Sonchus pinnatus

14th November 2010

A tall species from Madiera and the Canary Isles. I was given some seed that a friend of a friend had collected on holiday, but I can't remember where it came from.
It has grown vigorously through the winter but I tried to take a cutting in spring, and it promptly sulked for six months. I think it was just behaving as a winter grower should, but I am going to wait until it flowers before I try to propagate it again.
