I found this blue/violet flower on an acre in the Polder of Holland. It was growing in a sunflower field. The picture was taken in mid-october. Dutch flower with blue/violet blossom

  • Do you have a picture of the leaves, and the entire plant? That would help – J. Musser Oct 28 '15 at 17:03
  • Sadly no. but you can see two leaves at the bottom of the picture. – Arne Oct 28 '15 at 17:05
  • How tall was it?, and by two leaves, do you mean the broad leaves in back of the picture, or the smaller, composite leaf in the foreground at the bottom? – Bamboo Oct 28 '15 at 17:24
  • The smaller composite leaf in the foreground. Stephie seems to have hit the nail on the head though. – Arne Oct 28 '15 at 21:07

This is a Phacelia.

Contrary to your tags, this is no wildflower, but planted either as bee food or to be tilled under as fertilizer. As your specimen blooms late in the year, I suspect the latter use, probably some seeds were blown away.
