Is this a Cornflower?


Is this a Cornflower?

I only have the one. I had a bunch of little seed packets from a few years ago. I had done some seed swaps from a site, but then I moved, then I moved again and again and never got to use them. So this year I used them, but being so old I didn't know what seeds would still be good.
I had about 5 packs of different types of poppy seeds and only got 2 poppies. This must have been in one of the packs, but I didn't keep all those little packets. I did write down the names of everything I planted.

Looks like coneflower, Echinacea, maybe?

I've had Echinacea and I didn't think this looked the same, but I don't know.

I am not sure either, maybe post the photo in the Ask Question area and get more input? I just had to have three plants I.D. done too...

I found the problem here...but I don't know how to show it accept to upload more pictures. ...so they will follow :) explains why I was confused about this being a echinacea or not :)

Thanks ladies :) You'll see in the next few photos that I looked it up on google.
There are many neighbours growing echinacea around here, but it's all the same, the middle part sticks out and the leaves lay back and dark pink. From the google search I found out they don't all bend backwards and come in every colour of the rainbow with many different names, but all ecinacea. I couldn't get some of the pictures to upload, wrong sizes and the some that I did turned out blurry..

Interesting :) and now I want them all...lol...
