Carthamus dianius

Carthamus dianius
A lovely big Centaurea type of thing with white flower heads (with just the slightest tint of violet in the anthers) over jagged lobed deep green foliage. 
Carthamus dianius
Unlike the more familiar annual safflowers (C.tinctorius) this is a robust perennial and despite being Spanish is a hardy evergreen. Should be much better known.
