    Giant scabious, Cephalaria gigantea
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Possibly Scabiosa ochroleuca.

    Gant scabious.   Lovely big plant and great for pollinators.   Only flowers once in my experience but still looks good when dead headed - tho I would leave a few flowers on mine to collect seed.

    I thought the seed heads looked pretty nice too.  There were so many flowers on there
