Let it grow a bit - still too small to tell. It does look like a vinca, but you wouldn't know till it flowered.

Originally there was a bush lemon seed in the pot but this popped up, I think something has invaded LOL

It looks familiar and may soon have a purple or white flower.

I'm with Julie on this one. Vinca major - periwinkle. The enlarging button doesn't work for me so I might be wrong, but I'd be nervous if it came up somewhere I didn't already have it.

(Great groundcover though if you don't want to grow anything else.)

Manfred, are you saying that vinca is invasive? I've never found it so. Haven't grown any for years, as they seem to die on me for no apparent reason. And I'm a careful gardener!

It certainly is. It's one of the worst. I'm in despair in one patch of garden where it has overgrown a healthy japonica (Coleonema pulchrum -I think)and is coming through some bush roses.

One of my neighbours has it coming up in some soil they had delivered to backfill a retaining wall - it's the only thing coming up so far.

I have the variegated and the plain, and the plain is definitely more vigorous than the variegated. Where the two compete, the plain wins out!

There is a wild vinca and also an annual one sold in nurseries. They are similar. but when together dont match.

Mmm, don't think so.

Still think it's a vinca, but let us know when it flowers, just out of curiosity!
