Notes:

I live in the forest in sout central alaska. This feller popped up about 8 years ago and has returned annually. It has spread to some nearby areas, and if safe, I’d like to keep them and encourage growth. They come up as fuzzy leaves in the early spring, immediately after frost. The bloom is currently taking place

    Maybe a species in the bluets (Centaurea). Sorry, I can’t tell for certain which one you have here. Check out one in the group the mountain bluet (Cetaurea montana) from these included links below and information & cultivation methods.
