    Petals are like in the tight bunch together. I am quite sure it´s not any wild flower.

    I think that could be a member of the Erysimum family :scratch:

        The stamen and stigma look to be quite protruding in the original post @Silver surfer ??

        True.
        It is definitely in Brassicaceae.
        I was trying to get a good match on the leaves...but Erysimum would fit.
        Plant doesn't look very strong./healthy.
        I didn't see your post I was posting similar time...finding links always adds a few mins

            The plant has grown in quite dry place all summer (and it was hot in here). If weather conditions would better, it also might looks stronger).

              Yes agree with SikverSurfer.. I think it is small and pale and discoloured leavesbecause it’s roots don’t really go anywhere much..

                Not sure Marley, but I think it might be agreed that it is more likely to be Erysimum because we noticed the size of the stamens & stigma :what: what say you @Silver surfer ?

                Tetters is right ..with the sticky out stigma it could well be Erysimum.
                Agree it is not Bowles mauve.
                As it is from Finland I cannot be positive, as we don't know what plants grow there that we cannot grow here /are not familiar with.
                It might be a weed rather than a garden plant.

                  One gardener here checked those pictures and said this flower might be Iberis umbellata.

                    Sorry but I completely disagree.
                    What ever else it may be I do not believe it is Iberis umbellata.
                    They have different size petals.
                    2 petals are larger than others...see ...

                    Iberis umbellata - Wikipedia


                    Your top pic look to all be similar size petals....unless I am missing something.
