Some pictures in Italy are  sent by my old Italian friend Mario Berti. The flowers are borne on inflorescences in the form of heads; each head contains many small florets, each floret cupped in a membranous, saucer-shaped bract. The calyx has five sepals in the form of awns almost as long as the petals. sepals in the form of awns almost as long as the petals. Common flower in Italy, from sea level up to 1,500 meters. Italian name owes to the use made of it in ancient times to heal scabies. The other name derives from the color tending to purple, a color that in Italy is of mourning.
