I didn’t catch the name of these flowers when we bought them and planted them in the flower bed, but they definitely look related to the pansies that we also bought. They seem to have a double flower, with the stamen (?) linked together in the centre like a bridge.

Zooming in on different flowers produced the velvet-like effect of those slightly out of focus.

      Yes – this is it! What I called a bridge, they call a wishbone – which is exactly what it looks like.
      Thank you for taking the trouble to track this down. I couldn’t find it when searching “pansy look-alike’s”! πŸ™‚

        No problem! I love these puzzles. I actually did do it the old fashioned way… gave a bunch of descriptive words to Mr. Bing and hope he’d present me with the right flower. I found it searching for: purple, velvet, tubular, annual flower. It was about the 15th pix in the list.
        If I can see the leaves, I can use a key to figure it out.
        I just feel that there is nothing I’ve seen that someone hasn’t seen already…. and has posted it online!

    Absolutely beautiful and I love the color of this nameless flower. lol Sorry, we all forget the names of flowers we buy if we do not save the little tabs stuck in the container.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ And exactly – tho I don’t even remember a name tag. Possibly there was a sticker on the punnet, but that has either been thrown away – or chewed to oblivion by Little Monkey! πŸ˜€

    I’ve seen these… can’t quite pull the name out of my head! They are annuals here. I think they are more related to petunias than pansy. Could be wrong there..
