Thank you, Coralie! It certainly looks like Centaurea scabiosa now the flowers are out. They are a very pretty deep purple.

Greater knapweed is an attractive addition to the flower border and will grow much larger in the garden than in the wild. Like its close relatives in the huge daisy family, this species is very valuable to bees. It is also a magnet for many species of butterfly. Among them is the marbled white, which may occasionally venture into gardens near wild grassland.
