I posted this on the photo page, but should have put it here..I received these seeds in a trade last year, but have no idea what kind of plant this is...Does it have a different name??...I'd like to look it up somewhere...It likes to be kept on the damp side...Leaves look similar to a petunia, but it's not...It hasn't flowered yet; I will post a phote when it does...Thanks so much for any help!!

The foliage looks a lot like my Zinnia elegans. Flowers will tell for sure, though.

I have plants that look just like what you have here. I have seen them with white flowers, but mine are purple.

My from Seed to Bloom book has the common name listed "None-So-Pretty". It's a silene but it doesn't say what species. I got some "None-so Sweet" seeds from a trader too but I haven't planted mine.

Tim your photo looks like Lisianthus (Eustoma). And the leaves look about right in this photo: http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/mi05/mi05012.jpg

I don't know, Tim. Here's a link to a photo of Silene "None-so-Pretty" (note: not None-so-Sweet): http://www.expertree.net/annuals/silearme.htm

Sue, I have seed for Silene, too but mine bit the dust when I potted them up, so I never saw them at this stage.
