Is this Cephalaria Gigantea (Giant Scabious)?

Have you got a big garden CraighB? This one towers above everything else in the garden and will look out of proportion if it's the only large item.

Field scabious would be a better bet.

Where are you? what sort of things grow well for you?

Daves's right, sowing seed into grass is a waste of seed. Wildflowers in grass isn't easy even if you start from nothing. What sort of wild flowers have you got? Some of the meadow mixes aren't for grass meadows.

My laptop is funny about enlarging pics and I can't get a view of the flowers, they don't look typical honeysuckle. Have you looked at L. syringantha?
