can you identify this plant?
I found this plant in a tub at a pub in the Lake District but nobody at the pub knew what is was. I have looked in all my books but cannot identify it.
Bertie, I had a look at the plant you suggested but it is not that one. Mine has a much bigger flower with 'ears' at the top. It is also not an impatiens as I have checked in the books.The plant was about 9" high and spreading. It's leaves are about 1" long and narrow. The flower is about 1 1/2" long, red and purple.
I have an answer. It is a Cuphea Firecracker!
