ID please

Hi please can somebody name these little plants that I have grown from seed taken from my Dads garden earlier this summer, they looked so small and dainty so I took a couple of seed heads and they grew very quickly- within a month they had begun blooming and I now have loads of them!

    Look a bit like a pertunia. They're very pretty flowers.

    or penstamon maybe

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • I'm not 100% sure, but could be a Torenia?

    I had the same flower in my garden this year, except I didn't plant or so the seeds! I think I had this plant a couple of years ago, let it self seed and even though they didn't flower last year, I must have disturbed some dormant seeds and the plant flowered beautifully this year!


  • Oh gosh! thanks I will do some googling. Its def. not a petunia......well not as I know them, I've got lots of them in my garden at the mo.

  • Well I think you are right gladiogirl, thanks

    It is a mimulus (monkey flower),  I have a few in my gardening, beginning to flower.








  • Oooooooooh totally confused now ( as normal ), I think your right as well DimWit!

    I'd go with mimulus


  • Made a final decision.....the leaves look the same as yours DW, thanks

  • Thanks Hosta, I'm going with it too.
