These are from an annual mix but I don't have the seed packets anymore. I'd like to learn what they are, they're very pretty.
Great looking flowers, but I don't think I've ever seen them before. Hope someone comes along to tell you. I'm sure interested.
Pretty sure it is a clarkia but not up to looking up which one!
"Elegant clarkia" comes to mind...
Clarkia unguiculata! I never would have guessed! I was actually looking at some Clarkia seeds but decided it was already too hot to plant them. I'm glad these were in the mix!
Should I collect the seed and throw at edge of the woods or will it be invasive?

Invasive clarkia??!!! I should be so lucky!
It is the same as C.elegans (synonym) --
I see nothing negative about it in the PDB. Apparently can be bountiful if it likes you (grovespirit talks buying about ONE plant, putting it in solid clay, and then making *garlands* from the flowers!). And you have more than one color, even!
I'm green with envy! ~'spin!~
Grovespirit's pic is of Angelonia, not clarkia. I also have some of this growing in a pot. It's gorgeous, the blooms look like orchids.
