Plant Identification ? - any ideas please ?

My daughter and husband recently moved into their new home and have come across this plant quite happily growing in the shady part of the garden. Looks very pretty but I wonder if it might be a bit invasive as there are signs of multiple plants emerging. Any help will be much appreciated - thanks

    Seeds itself everywhere if you let it, but easy to pull up if not wanted.

    It looks like Centaurea Montana. Not sure if they're invasive, as I have never grown them.

    Thanks to you all, yes I'm sure thats the one. Will pass on information. Grateful thanks.

    One of my favourite plants ... great for bees and butterflies ... not what I'd call invasive ... just a 'good do-er'.  :)

    Easy to pull out if you don't like them. Ants often farm on them though.
