    Not really my kind of plant , but maybe a Mimulus ?

    Maybe but i'm not sure, I think i'm going to have to wait until it flowers, then see if it jogs my memory.
    Thanks anyway Paul

    Could it be a Fuchsia?  Often sold for hanging baskets etc.

    I don't think its a Fuchsia.
    Fuchsia buds hang down don't they? I don't know though it could be.
    The top photo is the flower buds.

    Reminds me a bit of a plectranthus ... but there are lots of different ones and I only know a few .........

    Looking at the leaves and buds again today , I'm still opting for Mimulus , probably M.guttatus .

    Not 'well-up' on annuals ; maybe some kind of Salpiglossis ?
