Centaurea montana, the perennial cornflower, is native to the high grasslands of Europe's mountains and is, quite simply, a great plant!
It is drought resistant and not fussy about soil, even if it's chalky, and is easy to grow in the sun or light shade.
Centaurea montana 'Purple Heart' is a bit of an eye catcher with its pure white ruff of petals kissing a purple heart! Grey-green foliage.
