This plant has been gorgeous this year. It was given by a friend a couple of years ago but I've forgotten its name. I've collected some seeds from it and wondered if I could propagate from seeds. So, can someone help with name and also can I grow from the seeds. Thank you fellow gardeners.

    It looks like Sisyrinchium striatum

    It is indeed and seed is dead easy.
  • Thank you both, I will certainly try growing from seed. Happy gardening.

    I have a lovely specimen in my garden and it self seeds quite happily.   Not always where I would like but easy enough to transplant or pot up and grow on.

  • Careful what you wish for, self seeds readily, and soon becomes a thug!
