They were good plants but I ended up replanting with my own mixtures. Another year I would definitely take photographs for reference

Blooms were limited, but I might not have planted them in an ideal place. I moved them to a more open, sunny position but still did not get an abundance of bloom. The colour was striking though.

As above. I think in future I will buy larger plants later in the season.
