    I’m not 100% sure but it looks like an Osteospermum of some sort - maybe Nairobi Purple.

    is it what I used to call cineraria? Maybe it's had a name change since then.

    These compact forms of cineraria are called Senetti...

    I knew them as cineraria when I worked in garden centres, but that's over 30 years ago now.
    Lots of plants have had name changes since then. Some more than once.

    That's interesting Hostafan - I remember the name cineraria too.  Thank you all for helping to name the plant - will it survive a winter here I wonder?
