    Don't know, but isn't it lovely?

    It's a bit out of focus and can't tell the size but looks like a maiden pink (Dianthus deltoides.)  If it's that, the flowers are usually about 1 to 2cm across and plants have short, thin leaves.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Close up photos of the leaves and preferably one of the whole plant would help 😀

    Hi, could you post a photo of the whole plant so we have an idea of scale and can see the foliage?

    Possibly a Periwinkle - Blockbuster Peppermint?

  • This is the best I can do. I only have one photo. The flower was in the battlefields to butterflies garden at Hampton court flower show so I guess it's a wildflower. I did not the opportunity to ask anyone whilst I was there.

    I think, THINK that might well be the chappy!!
  • Well it certainly looks the closest resemblance. Lovely little flower.
    thanks to all for replying.
  • You are a star Hostafan1. I am happy to go with your identification and do love this little chappy. I am now ordering seeds for my own garden!
