plant ID please was created by Anakei
I bought a plant at at a market stall (which died) and this was growing in the same pot. I thought it was a foxglove at first but now its flowered I don't know what it is. My plant ID app has drawn a blank as well. Any ideas?

If it is the size of a foxglove then it could be a delphinium.

It looks to me like some sort of mallow. This might help: www.massey.ac.nz/massey/learning/college...ences/.../mallow.cfm

No not borage, though that is what the plant ID app gets stuck on.
Not a mallow either - the leaves are oval to strappy, growing in an untidy rosette, which is why I thought it was a foxglove. Then the heads came up, multi stems, very hairy
I thought perhaps an echium, but I can't find any pictures to match that either.

Its peeing down with rain atm so if it stops I'll try and get a photo of the leaves.

Here's some more photos. A friend has suggested campanula, but I don't think they have hairy stems or toothed leaves.

Not unlike Vipers Bugloss or echium vulgarous but not quite the same leaves.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Could it be Echium plantagineum, Paterson's curse?

Not any of the echium, pattersons curse is not such an upright plant and its flowers more droopy. There is a good facebook page you could join called plant ID NZ. Some great sleuths in that group.

You could try posting the photo on the Nature Watch website or using the iNaturalist app. My understanding of it is that you post your observations in nature, and someone will ID your observation.

Looks like a member of the Campanula family.
Just thinking if it came in a pot from a nursery it could well be a 'cultivated' plant rather than a weed

Check out creeping bell flower and nettle leaved bell flower?

Thanks for your ideas.
I have been researching and asking around and the feeling is that its definitely a campanula, but what variety is puzzling. The closest I can find is campanula glomerata, but even so its not quite the same. I suppose it could be a cross between 2 varieties.
Whatever it is, its a keeper - its really very pretty!
