Excellent germination rate for the lime green and whisper seeds and they are flowering profusely but they don't have the evening fragrance I expected. 'Only the lonely' poor germination rate and weak plants that haven't grown or flowered.

The "Sylvestris" seem very slow to develop and are not showing any signs of flowering yet.
