Seedlings grew well, but as suggested on the seed packet, they didn't like being transplanted out into the garden from a seed tray. When I transplanted four plants into a large container, they did well and are currently flowering.

I grew these from seed. They are very unusual shapes and shades. Very pretty.

These great little flowers have thrived despite the very hot summer and my general neglect.
