If only I knew what it was? I saw one ages ago and have tried to find out its name, then I came across this image...

    Knautia macedonica? Looks like a scabious but reddish purple?

    Looks like one of the Knautias LF. Pic is a bit blurry when I enlarge but that would be my guess image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Must be right then Fairy. Should we mention the mildew?

    Perhaps LF has it wet as well.image

    Is it a particularly rainy part of the country where you are LF?

    Scabious always do well here too, and they can also get very mildewy  - same family though.
