    Definitely not Echium. I love those leaves  so will look forward to seeing exactly what they are. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • It's an Evening Primrose

    I have them seeded all over my gravel. Definitely EP. I recognised the red tinge on the leaves. (And they start off looking a bit like dandelions I think.)  :)

    Oenothera biennis, the wild evening primrose species then; not the Mexican evening primrose, Oenothera speciosa.
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).
  • Thanks that's great
