I grew this plant from seeds labelled Centaurea montana, which is now accepted as Cyanus montanus. It is finally flowering this year.

But now, when I went to try to positively ID I noticed that I couldn't find any pictures of the plant showing leaves like this one has. Maybe because its a young plant?

So hoping to get a positive ID.

Those leaves look less like mine than the C. montanus.
Another look at the flower ~

It looks like I'm probably growing Brown Knapweed. Sad Hoping someone can help me confirm?
