I bought this annual plant at the nursery and promptly lost the tag.

It blooms non-stop all summer long in part-shade with a mounding, yet airy looking habit to about 10" high.

That looks like a Nemesia. I'll do some checking around to find you the cultivar.

Thanks, Zuzu.

I'd never had this one before so I didn't know where to start looking. However, I definitely plan to have it again! Smiling

It might be Nemesia 'Opal Innocence.'

Some of these pictures match the color better, Chelle:

I came to this same conclusion after looking directly at the plant again. If someone had asked what the color was before I'd have said pink, but it's actually this lavender/gray with pinkish tones on the opposite side of the bloom, and the bits of yellow.

Thanks , again!

I'll get a few more pictures that better represent the bloom color and add it to the DB.
