Some of these have flowered nicely, the blue cornflowers especially look fab, but the 'denim blue' has not made an appearance. Bit disappointing when buying a mix.

The cornflowers have been absolutely spectacular - very tall and very prolific-flowering. They are still going strong as we enter August. The salvias are also good and blooming a lot. The verbena is taller and spindlier than I was expecting, but still producing a lot of flowers.
