Pic 1: Is it a Caryophyllaceae ?

Pic 2: No faintest idea (any Closeups of the flower)

Pic 3: Is it related to Sanguisorba minor ?

he Piny- GREAT!
1) Persicaria lapathifolia ssp. lanigera

2) Fasciculation is correct, and from what?

3) Mirabilis jalapa is unfortunately wrong!

MWP:
Pic 3: Is it related to Sanguisorba minor ? Yes, Sir, very good, Sir!

haha ! what a cool smiley!

I dont know pic 2, but following pine's comment about fasciculation, i remebered that Weber's mentions this malformation for Samolus valerandii... (and Amaranthus and Sanguisorba).

When JP says that we know the plant (but I dont reckognize it) I get a bit :evil: I looked closely to the photo and the stacks of linear leaves guided me to Lythrum, probably the larger flower one, that is Lythrum junceum.

PS: I dont even know that I have these smileys!!

Sanguisorba minor subsp. muricata ?? To say the truth it looks somehow different, so must be some other subsp.?

Seems to have spines... I would say Rosa canina wit ha big :!: since it is very rare but I recall it was mentioned to be encountered at Gozo.
