First, I managed to kill both my plants that I got from seed last year. If anyone that I gave cuttings too has one to donate I would appreciate it.

Second, I see what looks like PV seedlings all along the front of the bed. They were growing at the edge inside the bed so its a good bet those seedlings are pv. My issue is that last year I thought several seedlings were them, including tahoka daisy. I took a couple pics and am looking for some help IDing the little bugers. It will be hard to get them out so I want to make sure its worth my effort.

First pic. has a sprig of moss verbana at the far left. I can tell its lighter green and the leaves are smaller and more delicate.

So did the tahoka daisy when it was small but this is the right color and tahoka daisy is not.
Keeping my fingers crossed Josephine for some replacements, it was magnificant in all respects last season.
