Is anyone able to identify this plant.  It has been growing in my garden for what seems forever.  I am hoping that it can be identified by the buds.  Many thanks

    Yes, I agree. Can't spell the Latin name.

    If it's that, it's Catananche. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I grow catananche and it looks identical :)
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

     That makes so much sense.  I planted this well over a year ago and it was very slow to grow.  I gave up and plonked it in the bed last autumn as I couldn't bear to throw it away.  I thought it would have been eaten by now, but only recently saw the buds form.  Thank you all.

    I just had look it's pretty.  Is it too late to plant more

    Lovely plant. Have grown both the blue and the white ones.
    Very long flowering.
