Karen - this is actually a vegetable - salsify!
It is a biennial and I bought a plant last year to grow as an ornamental. This year I have about half a dozen plants that have self sown (I weeded about a couple of dozen more) and will let just one self sow again for next year

Oh.....gosh!....Lovely! I've never eaten salsify...is it good?

I don't know - I've never eaten it either!!
It is known as the vegetable equivalent of the oyster ;-)
