Should my bargain do this?

I bought this little chap yesterday in "poorly corner" for a euro.  I'm pretty sure it is an oenothera, despite the plant having no label, but should it be hanging?  I've looked in my garden bible but can't find any reference to a hanging oenothera. 

I think it will bulk up with some tlc and feed but I need to know if it is a "hanger" then I will put it in the appropriate place.

    looks like a "hanger" to me give it a feed and for a euro its got two chances to do well or not..image

  • I'd repot it, or plant it out, and add some bonemeal. When plants outgrow their pots the flowers often fall over. It's probably root-bound. It does look like an Oenothera

    I've repotted it in some good compost and given it a feed but it still wants to hang down so I've nailed the pot (it's an old aluminium pot) to the wall and it looks rather nice image.  I put in a couple of poached egg plant seedlings for company.  Yes, you're right, I'm completely bonkers....
