Not Hemerocallis.
I've grown enough and never seen a leaf like that.
Doesn't look like aster either as said by barremic.
What is this "Chinese Annual" you listed Lilylarkin, any Latin or otherwise name for it.

Hemerocallis leaves are like a flat onion leave almost. I have them growing from bulbs. and they come from the soil not the stem of the plant.

God number one is bugging me, i just cant think of it!

The packet doesnt have a latin name on it. Just various translations of Chinese Hybrid, ie Chinese ajers, Torch mengeling, torch mezcla. In the planting instructions it calls it a biennial F1 hybrid. 'in contrast to normal Chinese Pinks, F1 hybrids bloom even if sown late'

No 1 looks like a gazania - don't know what their proper name is - it also looks a bit like a weed Confused

Heres a picture of one of my hemerocallis in a pot, its about 3 years old, and has an orange flower.

I think its very different from the first picture, as all the stems come from the bottom of the plant?

All,

I think I may have the answer for the plant which has everyone stumped. I have fresh seedlings now coming up which look like the same plant and luckily I found the seed packet stuffed in the seed tray. It seems this plant is Helichrysum Bracteatum. Im not sure if i had that in the list of seed packets as I missed it being stuck in a seed tray.

Many thanks to you all for your input. Your prompt responses were great and I learned a lot more than I expected to.

I have now learnt my lesson and have purchased myself some seed labels!

Happy Gardening.
