Can anyone tell me what this flower is? Came out of a seedbomb and I just think they're so pretty! T

    Think the cream flower will need to open for a correct ID. Could be Helichrysum but would need to see the leaves.

    The pink one looks like a type of poppy. It's certainly an in your face colour  :)

    They look like ranunculus to me but they are usually planted as little bulbs that look like claws.

    @fidgetbones Yes my first thought too not sure how they would be in a seed bomb?

    I thought they might be Godetia?

    Yes, I thought the leaves looked similar to the ranunculus I planted earlier in the year, but I didn't notice any little claw like corms (corns?) sticking out of the seed bomb.  The leaves definitely look like that buttercup family to me. Mysterious! Could be godetia I guess, though from a quick google they're a bit less carnation-like than the pictures I found!

    Godetia leaves aren't like that.
