    Looks like Cephalaria gigantea (giant scabious), but yours is doing much better than mine!
  • I saw it in the botanic gardens in Dublin and thought it looked great - this was back in May - I just went back the other day to collect some seed from it!

    Sometimes too easy. I looked after a garden which was overrun with it. It sends down a great thick tap root like horseradish.
