    Default Can any one identify this flower?

    We were lucky and got a tag along flower in dd7 greenhouse tomato plant. It looks much like a rose flower, but isn't. The plant is very delicate, about 12 inches tall with tiny leaves. I couldn't photograph the stems as it's all in the middle of the tomato.

    OH, and btw, this is dd7 garden. She tends it herself. She planted it herself. I showed her how to prune the tomatoes and thing the radishes. She's doing great! I added as you can see in the tomato on the right the yellow flower.

    No the foliage isn't right for a begonia. It's very tiny leaves, almost like a carnation leaf, but not a carnation, petals aren't curly enough.

    Depends on the variety, according to wikipedia. LOL I think the perennials come from tubers. The one I showed you is an annual according to Park Seed. The perennials that I saw don't look so....rosy. They looked more like poppies to me.

    It isn't actually the one you showed me, but a variety of that. I found it that one didn't quite like this one.

    Here's one:
