Hi, can anybody help identify this mystery flower, I've looked at various ID sites but it's really puzzling me! Thanks
Oops I don't know why it came out upside down
I think it could be a Zinnia
Ok thanks Lyn! I'll go look it up...
It certainly looks like Zinnia ,don't know which one .
There used to be a variety of Zinnia called Whirligig, don't know if it is still available, but this looks very like it.
I know Whirlygig as a Osteospernum
Yes, I'm sure it's zinnia. I grew some this year for the first time (the packet of freebies in the GW magazine). I didn't realise they made such large plants, the flowers last for ages and lots on each plant. I will grow them again but will grow a shorter variety if I can find one.
nic1797, I have just Googled for Zinnia Whirligig and am positively drooling! I had forgotten how gorgeous they are. I'm sure that is what you have there, and next year I am going to have some as well!
Yes, Chrissie, your Osteospermum Whirligig is there as well.
Thanks everyone! looks like the mystery has been solved, not sure where it came from though! And yes, Oneofseven, it does look like it's a whirligig! I thought it had just one flower, but you're right Norfolkdumpling, there are 2 more flowers coming now!
