Could someone identify this plant please??

It’s just sprung up amongst my artificial plant display so I definitely didn’t plant it 😃

    Looks a bit like a Lobelia Cardinalis to me, but then again might just be a weed or rogue seed.

    The foliage looks very similar. Let's hope it flowers. If so, should go in the garden.

    Given the location, it'll be one of the willowherbs (Epilobium species), seed blown in on the wind.  They can survive in almost no soil.  I've rotated and resized the image which helps:

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

    It's funny how when someone else id's a plant you suddenly can see it as that but not before. The willowherb I get has a different leaf shape.

    Still think it looks like the lobelia though 😉
