I loved the luminous quality of these beautiful bright pink flowers which even in their first year continued into December! One of my favourite flowers this year and I will definately sow some more to line my borders next year. Thank you!

Full germination. Plants that had been put into the ground early have all developed and increased very quickly. Those still in pots are doing very well too. Freely flowering in their first season. A wonderful little filler or as a massed bunch. Nice, erect stems requiring no support from other plants.
