Centaurea, basket flower, I believe. In the asteraceae
I thought that cornflower and bachelor's buttons refer to the culivated varieties with an abundance of ray flowers, but a quick image search suggests that both common names include your flower and that basketflower seems to be a more thistle-y or yellow centaurea. It's definitely centaurea anyway.
Thanks so much!! I love the phyllaries (I think that is the right word. Sometime I have no confidence in my botanical knowledge when I have not used it in a while).
Oops, that last post was me-- I forgot to sign in. Anyway, the sentiment remains :)
