Is this the one Spritz ?...

Is this the one Spritz ?... (Scabiosa)

this is my black scabious just gone into flower... was wondering if this is the same as the ones that you lost last year... it is quite tall and leggy, but lots of flowers. out of the 20 seeds i had i ended up with 4 plants, another that looks this colour,,, one that looks more pinky, and another that is an orange colour...they are all a little behind this one, will include photos as they come into flower...

I did lose one which looked like this - but I found a new plant this year! Mine is called 'Chilli Black'...the others were 'Chilli Pepper' and 'Chiili Sauce'. Can't track them down anywhere. :-(.
