Hi
I thought this plant was a weed but let it grow. Its flowered and seems to be some kind of cultivated plant. Anyone know what it is?

    Maybe a dianthus?  Hard to tell though.
  • Looks like a Penstemon to me.

    I think it’s a very out of focus Antirrhinum.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Hi okay more photos. I did think it was an antirrhinum but grown them before. All of them have been more erect this one is more floppy if you know what I mean. 
    Okay phone keeps failing to upload photos so will upload from pc later.

    yay can post pics now.
     So any ideas what the plant with flowers is? So some antirrhinums have a trailing/flopping growth?

    Yeah, antirrhinum as Lyn said.  They need full sun and often grow like that (etoliated) if shaded or grown indoors, where they don't grow well.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    ok thanks. I've put it outside as its supposed to carry on being warm and hope it recovers a bit.
