these have turned out to be the most amazing plants I've ever grown,all seeds germinated and are lovely strong plants,the flowers are much larger than expected and a beautiful mauve colour,they look amazing in our gravel garden and I will be sowing a lot more for myself and several friends who have asked for them!
