please can someone identify this plant for me. It does seem to be happy in heavy clay under a hawthorne tree.

looks like centaurea montana (knapweed) but i could be way of the mark.
does it have purple flowers.

don't know!
I'm a complete beginner sorry.
but I do remember planting a celosia in the same spot last year. They did have purple spikes of flowers which lasted all summer (a miracle in my garden!)
