What is the name of this plant?

It grew by itself. But I don't see it in any garden shops.

I think Angelica would be a good name. Or Cyrus.

Re: What is the name of this plant?

Could it be a sweet william? These spiky buds will all turn into little flowers. I think it's called something Bart in German as it looks a bit like a beard.

Re: What is the name of this plant?

Photos are too blurry - need a close-up of the flower and of the leaf... could maybe be a Salvia (I assume it's not a lavender)... normally I would crush a bit of leaf and see what it smells like... can't do that over the internet...
