The Wild one is Catananche lutea (Asteraceae / garigue habitat), the other I leave it in the ornamental specialists :lol:

I try a bit of logistics:

Is the Ornamental 1 an Amaranth?
Is the fruit a Rosaceae ?


( Probably planet Pluto :oops: )

He MWP: yes, the Amaranthaceae is correct- very good! The whole pic will you find in a few weeks (Sierra company).
No, Rosaceae is wrong. My hint: number the dry flowers :)

I fire a guess on Rubiaceae (very unlikely - just from the fruit shape/size). I did not understand why the count of the dry fruit is a hint (which I counted 5)

not Rubiaceae.
I count 3 (on the left) dry flowers which never will produce fruits- tyüical for the family :)

hmmm... The hint reminded me immediately of Oxalis, but the Oxalis I know have an elongated poricidal capsule ?

So maybe an Ipomoea (which seldom make fruit)??

0936 is Euphorbia tirucalli, grown for ornament at many public and private sites.
