identification please. It's driving me nuts not knowing the name. Last year, I had a few of these growing amongst some seedlings of Verbascum chiaxii. Can't remember which illusive seed company I got them from. Anyway, I potted all the seedlings up and most of them are in situ in the borders. I topped up the fuchsia pot with old compost and this appeared. It is the same as some growing in the borders of clumps of verbascum.
It is about 3' tall and although not really visible on the photo, the stems are slightly reddish. The flower is like a little bright red bowl with a cap on.
