Won a plant at the tombola at the Goose Green fair but nobody knew what it was! Keen to care for it properly but Google and various aps aren't really helping. Anyone green-fingered and eagle-eyed enough to shed any light? Photos attached! Thanks :-)

That looks like a lily to me philosophie, though not sure exactly which one. Looks pretty healthy. I'd just put it outside, keep watering it and it should flower shortly. That'll make precise identification easier.

edited to say - that I may, of course, be completely wrong!

On my phone recently I have been seeing ads for a plant identification app called PLANT SNAP. It's free.
You photograph the plant and the app is supposed to be able to ID it. It tells you how to proceed. Good luck! I won nothing on the plant side but a bag on the gifts side, which I really did not like, so gave it to the MIND shop across the road! Great fair this year I thought.

It isn't toadflax.

Some of the reviews for that app are pretty critical of it, unfortunately ....

Yes, tried a couple of apps and they weren't too great. Might be because I was going for the free ones! Thanks, everyone - I'll also look up toadflax, just in case.
