I came across it while in the Yorkshire Dales and loved it, having never seen it before and no one was around for me to ask what it was.. Please and thank you.. I'm new here so hope this photo works..

Hi Jane
The name of this plant is Centaurea montana (Perennial cornflower). I have these in my garden. I also have a lovely amethyst and white variety, which has just been added to the Shoot plant list, it is beautiful.
The flower in spring and set seed everywhere.
Cheers, Angie

Jayne, I am sure I have seen packets of seed for these in those seed racks at B&Q. They are early flowerers so would probably be available early in the year. I grew my purpe/blue from a tiny wee cutting from my neighbour and bought my Amethyst variety in Dobbies way back in March. Hope that helps.
