This purple wildflower (with small white flowers inside) grew from a packet of wildflower seeds. It is currently growing in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Could you please help me identify it? I would love to grow more of it, but have no idea what it is!
Thanks in advance for your help. Lindsay

It looks like a form of Clarkia unguiculata or Clarkia elegans. It is an annual flower that is naturally found on dry, open slopes in North America to South America. Some Clarkia make good cut flowers. I’m not sure if this species does, but you might try cutting a few stems.
