Can anyone identify This?

Hi,could anyone identify this plant for me? I set some seeds and carefully wrote labels and stuck them on the trays but they faded and fell off so I have no idea what this plant is. I've managed to identify the rest of them but unfortunately I threw the packets away when I sowed them.

    Looks a bit like my poached egg plant seedlings - Limnanthes douglassii.

    If they are, they'll spread like wildfire if you let them set seed.

    Yes, but they’re easily pulled up & I like them.
  • Thank you. Poached egg plants were one of the ones we set. 
    From memory we sowed
    Sweetpeas
    poached eggs
    marigolds
    Livingstone daisy
    hollyhocks
    morning glory
    cornflowers
    Lobelia
    Nasturtium
    tomatoes and peppers. 


    I have now learnt my lesson and ive bought some proper stake labels and marker pen.

    I use black labels and a white pen - stays clear for years, even after winter rain :)

    It’s got to be those then, nothing on your list other that Poached eggs would look like that.

    I agree with poached egg plant, they look exactly like the seedlings I have growing

    We liked them too, and they're great for insects, but they were taking over a (heavy clay) bed and it took two or three years to get rid of them.

    It's always the way Hazel 1. Didn't perform well at all last year, so I ripped them up mid-summer and in January this year, they have self-seeded themselves everywhere and they are far more advanced than those ones in the pictures.

    I grew them last year but they all died after planting out in the garden.   I can recall someone else had the same problem.   I'm growing the white ones this year .....hopefully these will take
