Hi, I'm back for another ID of a small flower in my new back garden border. This one shouldn't be difficult as it has a very distinctive petal arrangement. It's about 25cm tall, branching and with ovoid leaves.
I don't know but it looks very pretty.
I don't recognise it either but leaves, growth habit and anthers are very fuchsia-like. Maybe some form with 4 large sepals and tiny (invisible) petals?
Could it be clarkia?
Yes, Clarkia, now Godetia
Or is the other way round
Thanks everyone, you've helped me get a defintive ID, its Clarkia unguiculata, elegant clarkia, or mountain garland, a woodland plant endemic to California. There's quite a few now growing in my new border. I've had and have still got other Clarkia species, but this is a lovely first.
BTW, Bobthegardener, the petals are the pink spade-like parts, the sepals are fused in a cup shape beneath the corolla. There are a few of the species that have this arrangement, although rarer than this one and with some gorgeous colouration in the petals. See the wikipedia page on Clarkias.
