    I think it's a wildflower Bekkie, Berghill gave the botanical name above. I bet you can buy them though...mine was a self seed that got to 8' tall and then fell over and snapped my hollyhock.

    It's now in the binimage

    Were you thinking of the catananche plant with a similar flower? 

    Wearside, England.

    very similar flower on catananche and cichorium.  But the cichorium grows 6 ft and flops everywhere, the catanche only grows 2 feet and flops everywhere.

    The photos def  Cichorium intybus, as berghill said.
