cannot find this plant anywhere!

urbanpirateJune 23, 2014

I have tried finding this plant on a fair few fauna finders online and still cannot name it. It grew very fast and is huge, though the flowers are pretty I need to know if it needs removing.I have pictures of the flowers which are very orchid like and pink though I can only upload one picture!

That is a picture of Clarkia elegans. It is also known as C unguiculata. Do some more Googling - it has been developed by seed merchants into many colours both double and single. Yours is nearer the wild species in appearance.

Clarkia unguiculata is the correct name. Clarkia elegans has been applied to two different species (first to C. pulchella and later to C. unguiculata), both of which were previously described under other names.

Thanks for the clarification nonmember. Thus the OP's plant is C unguiculata, formerly C elegans, the name I learned it under.

I bought seed called Godetia and had a plant like this come out and you told me it was clarkia.

Are clarkia and godetia the same thing?

Godetia is Clarkia amoena. The OP's plant is C unguiculata, previously known as C elegans. Same genus, different species.
