Identify lavender & pink wildflower?

Richardson, TX

Hi, I'm hoping you can identify this beauty growing in Dallas TX. It's a single bloom growing on a tall stem.

Thanks!

Looks like a Scabiosa - pincushion flower. There are many cultivars but some species are considered invasive weeds. Yours looks too pretty to be a weed! LOL

Thanks, Kell! The link to the DG images confirms it. There was only this one lone ranger in a whole field of blue bonnets and paintbrush, so the jury's still out whether it's invasive LOL. TBD
