Flower from Louisville Plant Swap

Molly got some plants and this one she doesn't have a clue as to what it is. I don't have it, so someone brought it. I have a picture but I can't figure out how to attach it....The plant has pink flowers blooming from sides of it. The flower looks like an upside down snapdragon to me. Anyone know what it is? Thanks, Marcia

hmmmm....I'm having computer (phone line) woes, so I can't do/search much.

Might it be a pink obedient plant? It seems someone had that for trade/sharing.

Looks like some kind of bush balsam...


RE: Flower from Louisville Plant Swap

Yep, looks like balsam. It self sows freely but is easy to pull out if it becomes a problem.
