Can you tell me what this plant is please - I thought it was corncockle, but doesn't fit the pictures I have found. Thanks.

    They look like Cornflowers. Centaurea Cyanus ‘Black Ball’.

    That would be my answer too.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Thank you Busy & Borderline, the stems are tall, the leaves long and thin.  I think I sowed them from seed, I had a wild flower seed mix with mostly native plant seeds in it. Are they native to the U.K.?
