I hope someone can help with an ID on this one. It's growing on my property in Idaho, and I can't find any others here. I've searched the internet, and can't find anything. I have no idea if this is something that was planted by me, or is growing wild on its own. It's in an area that I tossed some Corn Poppy seeds, so the seed could have been accidentally mixed in with those. Any help would be appreciated!

The plant is about 18 inches tall at this point, and the blooms are about an 1.5 inches across. Sorry for the poor quality, but the wind here makes it hard to get a clear picture.

My first thought was flax but I'm not sure.

Could it be Corn Cockle (Agrostemma githago)?
