A helping hand to identify the plant
Darren in Dublin2 Posts: 8
I was talking to the neighbour about plants etc, and she said she had a plant that has popped up, but didn't know exactly what it was!
I mentioned how I had used this forum to identify my Acanthus Mollis and Leycesteria, so said I may see if I can help her out by identifying her mystery plant.
Its likely to be a annual as it she thinks it came from a seed packets that contains a load of different seeds, but as she hasn't got the packet she's curious to know what it is
I have attached a photo so any thoughts would be welcome.
Apologies if I have posted something which in a few weeks start to produce corgettes, but you are dealing with a real amateur here!
Thanks as always

I don't know what it is, but it looks like it has a flower developing in the middle, so wait till that opens then take another picture Darren for someone on the forum to help.
looks like a small jerusalem artichoke to me
Def. not a courgette! The way the bud is reminds me of a China Aster, which is an annual, but it's years since I've grown them.
Could well be a sunflower, looked on Google.
its a low growing sunflower, i think.
It does look like a sunflower. I know you mentioned a seed packet but do you or your neighbour have a bird table or feeder?
