Welcome!

Can you tell us where in the world these plants are located?

How tall is it? How wide? Does it have a milky sap when a stem is broken? Can you take photos of the fully open bloom? Where did your friend get this seed? In Cyprus or mailed form somewhere else -- what country/region? Do the blooms have a scent? Same question for crushed leaves.

The flower reminds me of Senna, maybe something in the Senna family is found in your region.

I was thinking senna too but could not find anything like the photo for Cyprus. That's why I asked for more pictures and details.
