    not corncockle, that's pink or white

    Something in the borage family I should think. One of those annual echiums maybe?

    Thanks for the replies. I've grown vipers bugloss before and they always had hairier stems and not a slender stem like this. hmm

    It's a large family, not just Viper's Bugloss

    Also some of this family don't do so well in pots which may account for weak appearance

    Looks like an anchusa.

    we are Dove. image

    If it was only sown a month ago it's an annual Ynnead.

    Are there annual anchusas, they're not a plant I've grown.

    Still looks like a depressed annual echium to me.

    Hi I didnt want to start a new thread but since u guys were so good at identifying that plant any chance for an id for this one lol?

    Its a climber from what I can see and has got three little hooks on the end of the tendrils its using to climb I think. Might be too early as it is still small
