Unknow Asian

The flower is about 1 inch across. I am almost certain the plant is of Indian subcontinental origin.

I wouldn't have known it Eric - but I would like one!

Does it set seed?

Eric.... I still have no idea what your plant might be!

Ron: as far as I know, it is simply the case that the Gibralter form of the Campanula is subsumed into Campanula mollis, though some still seem to cling to the other name.

According to Munoz (2008) Catalogo actualizado de la flora vascular del Subbetico Cordobes, Campanula malacitana v. gibraltarica is a synonym for C. mollis (wonderful what you can find on Google!), so Maggi is right, and Greenleaf is right and everything is quite alright. Having said that, the photo doesn't look much like the C. mollis I knew from Ronda, but perhaps it is different in Gibraltar. It does seem to be a campanula however.
