Can you help ID these wild flowers?

jazzygardener(z4 MN)September 30, 2008

A friend of mine has these flowers growing wild in her yard in WI (zone 4). She says that they self seed every year. They're a very pretty dark purple and vivid pink. One of the pictures is a little washed but, shows the shape of the petals (so I used it). Does anyone know what these are?

Looks like Callistephus chinensis.

Yjeu are garde escapes, though; not wildflowers
