Difficult to say until it does something like flower or fruit-at the moment looks a bit like a pepper but then again also a bit like lilac-so....

Where did the seed come from?

Dovefromabove

Was it any specific type of wildflower mix, eg. for bees, or for dry areas, or woodland etc?

Could be Nicandra Physiloides, the "shoo-fly" plant, but I am not sure.

@Dovefromabove, looks like it was targeted at pollinators. Was in a pack from B&M bargains so it won't be a specialist mix I doubt.

@punkdoc comparing the seeds, it doesn't look like it unfortunately, but thanks for the suggestion.

Try Mirabilis jalapa. aka Marvel of Peru or  4 o'clock flower.

I'm pretty confident that it isn't a native wildflower (UK) though it will be a wild flower somewhere. 

Seeds and seedling look right to me

@nutcutlut Thanks, that looks spot on! I shall plant it out as it does look nice. Funny that its not a British wildflower as the box was advertised as such.

Thanks for the ID!

It's an evening flowerer with a wonderful scent but sometimes get muddled and becomes a day time flowerers
