Can anyone help identify this plant? It's appeared in a very shady spot in the garden, and I have no recollection at all of planting anything there. It's about 9" tall (23cm)
The flower has 5 parts to the "trumpet" part and a yellow throat.
The flower is trumpet shaped, and the petals unfurled from inside of the trumpet. The buds are trumpet like too and have a sort of star shaped button at the end.
It has no noticeable scent and the leaves are quite fleshy and distorted (although the distortion might be from lack of water and being nibbled by something as it was emerging!).
Any ideas? Anyone?
While I was contemplating the plant, and skimming duckweed off my pond earlier (for my neighbour's ducks to eat!) this lovely damselfly came to visit. I'm pretty sure it's a male Common Blue, but common or not, it's very beautiful.
