Identify this plant.
Can anyone identify this plant, which has suddenly appeared in my garden this summer?
Sheffield, Derbyshire border.
Nicandra physaloides [Shoo fly plant ]
He calls her the chocolate girl
Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
She knows she's the chocolate girl
Cause she's broken up and swallowed
And wrapped in bits of silver

I had some pop up in the veg patch last year ... goodness knows where from ... birdseed possibly?

They do pop up everywhere, I haven’t seen the seed in the bird food, but it could have, or a present from a bird from eating it off the plant.
I've put some seeds on the Seed Swap thread.
