 Top plant, grown from one seed, fast grower,is it a perenial? Second plant, no idea, just grew in pot, very slow grower. Third plant, also came up in pot, stem feels woody

    The top one looks a tiny bit like a kind of phacelia,

    Does the bottom one have very smelly leaves?

    I thought the top one might be the annual echium but I don't know them well enough to be sure

    The bottom one agastache rugosa

    the middle one could be one of the campanulas,

    SEcond does look like a campanula. The ones with the the long belll flowers like campanula punctata rubra.

  • the top on is vipers bugloss second one not so sure of.. the third one is agastache i have them in my garden

  • sorry did wrong button the vipers bugloss is not perennial but it self seeds like a foxglove if you let it.. tiney black seeds when flowes are gone.. is it bit prickey when you touch it.. that is vipers bugloss

    the agastache is meant to be perennial but i treat it as half hardy depending on where you are..

    sorry cant help on second one

    That top one looks like the little annual echium that comes in the bee mixes rather than the biennial native Viper's Bugloss
