Morning everyone, hope it's a good day for all. I'm not sure I've the right name for this as the flowers are vibrant pink rather than red. #plantid

I love this plant (I have the lime leaved variety) but I'm forever digging them up as they spread quicker then weeds 😁

@angiecrazycatlady I believe they're self seeders so I'll try and deadheads as soon as I see any that are fading.

@Keely I wondered if it was a Campanula?

I really don't know leaves don't look much like a campanula they are normally jagged edges in the clump forming ones, it does look similar to a borage leaf but still not seen one like it I've tried to Google borage but can't find any similar 😕

Does it have a square stem?

@cosmicveggie it doesn't have any central stem, round, square or other it's forming a dome about 30cm high with oval leaves

Can you post a close up too?😊

I think that's a good thought, strange that the leaves are non-varigated but I'll post a close up tomorrow (weather permitting) 🤞🙂
