    Hello, I am new to this forum so will probably do this all wrong. Am trying to find out the name of this plant bought for me in the Spring, it looks very much like a Bocopa but is very dense and the leaves are not the same as a Bocopa ,the leaves are very tiny and pointed look more like fine grass. Any ideas please.SAM_1108.JPGSAM_1109.JPGSAM_1110.JPGSAM_1108.JPGSAM_1109.JPGSAM_1110.JPG

      Welcome to Gardeners Corner @Pavour :sign0016:, and please don't worry as you have posted perfectly, and in the right place to hopefully get your question answered.

      We are extremely lucky here, as we have a member called @Silver surfer who is unbeatable at identifying plants, and is a thoroughly lovely lady as well. Hopefully you will get an answer soon.

        Welcome to the forums Pavour.

        Goodness me you made me blush Fat Controller.

        I am struggling as I cannot quite see the detail...small 5 petal flowers with narrow opposite leaves...that is a fabulous plant.
        I wonder if it is all one plant in red , pink and white OR if there are 2-3 different colours which have all grown together?

        Nearest I can get is Gypsophila repens Rosa Schonheit.
        Hopefully someone else will instantly know this cute plant.

        Leaves of Coleonema pulchellum don't look right.

          Thank's silver surfer and all, think you are spot on with Gypsophila Repens I think it is the one called compacta comes in pink or white, the red in the pot is a Petunia don't know how it got there. So glad I found this site.
