I don't even know if this is a grass or something else so couldn't find it in the identifier!

It doesn't show in the photo, but each leaf is edged with a thin dark red line.

Any ideas?

EDIT: whoops, I think I DO know what this is. Tradescantia Bilberry Ice if my planting map is right.

It must have been this other plant I didn't know the name of!

Hi, Vicki,
The first one is some sort of Zinnia - will be easier to id the exact one (or come closer) ones those buds open :)

Thanks, Kathy. I did think after posting, it would have been sensible to wait till the buds were open! At least I know what I'm looking for now so much appreciated!

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