I was thinking Centaurea americana. A pick of the foliage would help.

Hopefully someone with a bit more expertise on the matter can chime in. There are so many Centaurea that appear very similar, and a good bit of variation within the each species.
To my eye, the foliage doesn't look right for Centaurea americana.
