Would like to know what this is, some sort of wildflower I assume. I have the nagging feeling I (should) actually know it.

    It looks a bit like Stokesia Laevis, Stokes Aster.

    Thanks Borderline - but this plant's flowers don't seem to have that star-shaped flower head. I'll add another picture, perhaps it helps.

    there are a lot of leaves in there that don't go with flowers. I think that's an Echium. 

    One of the annual Echium vulgare varieties, 'Blue Bedder' maybe

    Think Nutcutlet is right there. Definitely looking like an Echium of some sort.

    Thanks nutcutlet! I've had that in the garden, in very small numbers, I think you are right. For some reason I thought Blue Bedder looked quite different -- this could mean there's another type of plant that I mistook for Blue Bedder. I wlll go out and have a look tomorrow to check whether there's no end to my confusion. The other leaves are helleborus foetidus.
