Little purple wildflower

Can anyone identify this little purple wildflower which grows to 20 - 30cm in height. I allow a patch of it to grow every year because the butterflies love it, particularly these Lesser Wanderers. There is something about the spent flower heads which they find irresistable & when disturbed, dozens take to the air.
I meant the pics to be in reverse order. Sorry. You'll work it out.
Cheers. Val

I'm pretty sure that's verbena.
