I have recived some seeds a while ago, they have since germinated and grown well. Although they have grown well I do not know what they are. Please help. Thank you.

Hi Sp...

I think this might be Alyogyne...

I have inherited two in my lifetime...they are (here) medium sized (1-2m all round) shrubs with leaves a bit figlike...and lovely, quite large starry mauve flowers...quite beautiful...

Not an Alyogyne, but possibly a Nicandra?

Definately a Nicandra physalodes, the shoo fly plant. Grown as an anuual here, I had grown some from seed several years ago. and the one in a large pot outside my door, set seed, which all came up this year. even after the temps dropped away to -18.
