Appears to be sun-loving annual which reseeds but not agressively. In my flower bed but don’t know how I got it.

    Chinese foxglove
    Rehmannia elata

    I’ve enjoyed growing it.

    It’s a Chinese Foxglove, but I thought it was more of a perennial rather than an annual! Actually it would be a biennual in this case because if grown from seed the first year it does not produce flowers, but only a rosette of leaves.

    They however spread with underground runners during Summer so you see new plantlets popping up here and there, and I guess that is why it is defined a perennial I guess.

    They are very easy to transplant too and to place in the spot that you prefer them to be at.
