Can anyone ID this, please?

It was in the "patio plants" section, labelled "trailer" and I assumed it was a foliage plant. Obviously I was wrong!





Possibly Rhodochiton atrosanguinium

Comes trippingly off the tongue... Thank you, Andy - appreciated!

Never mind, Bilbo - thanks anyway!!!

Not sure I have the ID yet - the leaves don't look right for the rhodochitum. If all else fails, I'll go back to the nursery (I always like a good excuse!!)

I've found it - Lophospermum Impatiens! Thanks, Bilbo!

No - I though it probably wouldn't. It's much nicer than I expected, though! I got two so I'm waiting now to see if the other one flowers - this one has got plenty of buds on it. I have moved it nearer to the house so I can see it from one of the windows.

I'll move it into the cold greenhouse. I shall try and collect some seeds as well, though.

Thanks, Bilbo!
