I bought some plants several months ago at the same time as some hyacinths, i planted them not having a clue about them and dont recall what they are and if/when they will flower.

The initially just flopped onto the floor and spread a bit, but over the last few weeks they have began to rise up, i seem to think the flowers are red, although there are no flowers or any signs of flowers.

Not sure if either picture helps much, but some description.

Plant height is 6" at the most, spread is 10-12" max (so far) leaves are about 6" long and smooth to the touch and pointy.

 The spread is from the centre without growing up through the ground (not sure if that makes any sense) more of a creep but with leaves rising up.

I think it's Campanula persicifolia, Peach Leaved Bellflower. Not completely sure though.

you could be right, but i thought i would recognise the plant when it was said, which in this case i dont.

that's what it looked like to me as well, the campanula. 

have to be wait and see.
