Help with Identifying Plant

PMD84PMD84 Posts: 3

Hi All,

I've not long moved into my first house and have inherited some plants from the previous owners. I thought I'd let them all come up over the spring\summer so that I could see what they were but I need help identifying the one in the pictures. It's come out in masses of lovely red and yellow flowers....

    The buds look as if it's a centura plant, a perennial type of cornflower.

    I have quite a bit of here, I like it but it will spread

    I think it's definitely centaurea http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=361 

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    The second one is definetely the perennial cornflower.
