Thanks

A helping hand to identify the plant

Posted: 25/07/2013 at 19:59

Hi there

I was talking to the neighbour about plants etc, and she said she had a plant that has popped up, but didn't know exactly what it was!

I  mentioned how I had used this forum to identify my Acanthus Mollis and Leycesteria, so said I may see if I can help her out by identifying her mystery plant.

Its likely to be a annual as it she thinks it came from a seed packets that contains a load of different seeds, but as she hasn't got the packet she's curious to know what it is

I have attached a photo so any thoughts would be welcome.

Apologies if I have posted something which in a few weeks start to produce corgettes, but you are dealing with a real amateur here!

Thanks as always

Thanks people. I just surfed the net and think you're spot on. I'll be sure to keep an eye on the Leycesteria formosa as it sounds like it can be a bit invasive. It's already over shadowing the hosta so I'll keep it in check

I have to say this site is great for a budding amateur like me so cheers to all who contribute and I'll be sure to keep the forum busy!

Here's raising a glass in thanks
