My next door neighbour has this. He knows it as a Fried egg plant but when he visited Mr Google there were many different sorts of lants with that name.

It is lovely - about 60cm x 60cm




I know a poached egg plant, Limnanthes, but I don't think this is it

Looks more like a helianthemum

do you know if it's an annual or a perennial?


Shrub-like perennial, Small leaves, no smell, not a cistus


Poached egg plant has bigger centres and small white edges. As nut says- limnanthes is it's posh name.Does look like a helianthemum. Maybe your neighbour just knows it by that name- fried eggs have more white round them I suppose!



Thanks very much. I will pass it on. I knew someone would Know. now to persuade him to give me a piece 


I should think a cutting or two would be your reward for identifying their plant
