Can anyone identify this plant please?

Isle of Wight, United Kingdom Gb

I think this is a Centrum, however I have always grown more blue varieties. This one looks purple, can anyone tell me the variety please?




It looks like Centaurea dealbata, the colours can vary between cultivars.

Are you sure it's not Centaurea montana??? I haven't ever seen a C. dealbata this dark - they are normally shades of pink.
