I can understand your confusion. I can take a photo of Cephalaria gigantea now if you have any doubts about our negative ID here.

True wild flowers like the soil that suits them. Rich, poor, wet, dry. There's no one soil requirement for what man has decided to call wild flowers

There are wildflowers for all soil types. Not all wildflowers like acid soil. Some do, some don't. Same for wet area or dry area, sun or shade. Wherever you go you'll find that something will grow

Unsure about growing this climber

I've got one. It grows in a place where roses or clematis would struggle. It's huge with not much to show for it.
