Can someone ID this little beauty? I planted a box of mixed flowers and had to pop up. Unfortunately my daughter plucked it right up and it's the only bloom so far (guilty toes on the right side! ). Hopefully there are more

I grew this before. Very pretty. Can't remember the name - an annual for me in the UK!

Is it a vine? Looks like what we call bindweed - Convolvulus arvensis, related to morning glories but is a pest here.

Don't think it's a vine! It's ground hugging! To fight it, you need another pest! LOL!

Nemophila maculata is the name. The simplest name is Five spots! It's calling a spade a SPADE! ;)

No, not a vine. I'm not sure which plant it came off of, as my daughter picked it before I got a good look. But none are vining.

I think you are correct! Looks like it's a good attractor for solitary bees as well, bonus!!
