Does anyone recognise this "volunteer" from my friend's garden? I thought it might be some form of Salsify (Tragopogon) the foliage and sepals look right but anthers are too round an regular. Many fruitless google searches.

sure looks like Salsify. Are your sure that round anthers rule that out?

Just had a really close look at the photo and found I had moved the anthers (either visually or mentally) on to a horizontal instead of a vertical plane - silly man! Thanks to all who responded.
