Plant ID

Hi

could someone please help me ID this plant - I’ve lost the label for it. It was in a pot and grew lovely, with lots of new growths along some of the stems, so it looks like it would spread along large areas. I moved the pot as we are moving and I wanted to put all of the plants I’m taking into one place for easy removal, but it looks like the plant is withering up. The pics are from before I moved it. 

Thanks

    It looks like a wallflower. They are biennial or short lived perennials. It's starting to flower and is quite mature so I don't think it liked being dug up in it's prime! It may well have died after flowering or during next winter anyway.

    Look like Wallflowers to me.
    Most types are biennial, so will die after flowering.

    Thank you both - i don't feel so bad now, but was a shame as it was really looking lovely! Do you think i could take a piece with a root and try to grow that in my new garden, or won't it take given the type of plant it is?

    Easy to grow from seed.

    Yes, seeds sown in late spring can be transplanted in autumn to the final flowering places to flower next year. Or you can buy young plants in Garden Centres in autumn ready to plant in your garden.
