Hi all, please could anyone help me with what type of flower this is, I had a packet of wildflower seeds which gave no description of the different varieties, but we really love this one and would like to buy specific seeds, it looks wonderful, almost like blossom (probably some crazy weed that we will never get rid of) :)

Thanks very much, happy gardening!

    Looks a lot like the godetia rembrandt I've got in my garden

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    that's not a wildflower in the UK. It's Clarkia./Godetia, whichever one of those names superseded the other.

  • Hi Pete8 & nutcutlet, thanks so much for the quick replies, really appreciate it, will be on the look out for seeds for next year!

    save the seed from these Allan. Wait til they're dry and tip them into an envelope. Cool and dark for the winter, sow in spring image

  • Thanks nut, great idea, I don't know why I didn't think of that :) cheaper and I know what I'm getting!

    Yes, very true. image

  • Absolutely, be rude not to in that case, hope my seed sowing/growing skills are up to the job image

    Thanks again both, much appreciated
