I found a tiny variegated seedling when I was clearing out the weedlings from my pots so I kept it and here's what grew. It looks like osteospermum to me but I haven't had a variegated one in the garden for probably 10 years, so does anyone have any other ideas ?

    Euphorbia?

    I think the growing tip needs pinching so I'll do that in a mo and see whether there's any sap.

    No milky sap, so not euphorbia (thankfully - I don't like them so it would be destined for the great compost bin in the sky if it was one).

    Can you get variegated Campanula, it looks a bit like Bellflower,  looks as though it’s throwing up a flowering shoot, perhaps post again when it’s flowered.

  • It looks like a variegated Erysimum ;)

    Could well be ...

    Erysmium is much more likely. I had one of those a few years ago (and still have a couple of green leaved varieties).  I'll pot it on and see what happens.
