    A friend of mine in Finland got this kind of plant but she has no idea what it might be. Anyone knows it?

    It might be bacopa, there are different varieties.

    I wonder if you might look at sutera cordata "snowflake" - it is a Finish wild plant which covers the ground and I think it is a type of bacopa.
    I am quite sure someone else will correct me if I am wrong.
    Found this on Google as I thought it looked interesting.:)

    Yes I know Sutera cordata "snowflake", it´s common in our gardens (actually I have it too at this summer) but it´s not wild flower in here. It may not be a winter-proof in here.

    I am still wondering which variety this one is (in pictures) because of it´s leaves.

    Yes, I thought the same thing - maybe there is someone else who will manage to find a better match.... and can find more searching time ;) :fingers crossed:

    Could it be a hardy Geranium perhaps, say Celtic white perhaps.?

    Interesting one.
    Got no where with this.
    Especially as there is a bud..or a seed head visible in first image.
    I have enlarged the bit I mean.

    Does it grow outside?
    Looks more like a tender houseplant.
    Wiry, trailing stems, alternate lobed leaves..cute white flowers...Hmmm!!!

    This bud/seed in the picture belongs to the other plant.

    It is a bit cinquefoil like but the leaves are too rounded.. :scratch: It sort of makes you think you should know what it is, don’t know why though.. So far struggling for an I D:scratch:...
