2. Spotted Knapweed

I thought this was an aster of some sort, and it appears to be in the aster family, but Spotted Knapweed (Centaurea maculosa) is not as nice a name as I would have given this wildflower. Evidently it is considered invasive in other parts of the U.S., and is native to eastern Europe. More invasive plants to come. . .
