Can anyone tell me what this plant is? It comes up every spring on a small patch of ground in my front garden. I have never seen it anywhere else and it doesn't seem to grow on anyone else's garden in the street.

Thank you

Have another go at sending the pic JR.



Second time lucky with the photo!

A cerinthe?

How tall?  If it is 25 - 30cm I'd go with cerinthe too.  They were very popular at Chelsea a few years ago because of their dark flowers and they do self seed which would account for it coming back each year.  Not a long-lived plant though.

Please can you add further pics to this thread.

Wouldn't like to guess what it is from your pic.

Yes it's a cerinthe! Thank you,( I checked other pictures online ) I think it's so pretty and yes it doesn't last long, I look forward to it coming up every year, thanks again
