Has anyone used these flowers?

Will use this thread just as a starting off point for me. I'll have plenty more to ask about as landscape progresses.

Painted Daisey http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/89934/ one I'm using is 24", long stemmed shades of rose and scarlet
Vinca http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/185/ using mixed shades of pink and white ones

Cheap seed packets rarely are specific about which ones you have but mine does look like some of those!

I guess PlantFiles isn't foolproof. I typed "english daisey" in the common name section, same as I did for the other 3 seed varieties and all but the english daisey came up. Strange?

Thank-you for the education!

I have Maiden Pink "Brilliant", and I really like it. I bought mine as plants a couple of years ago.

By the way, I think the reason you didn't get anything for English Daisy is because you misspelled daisy (no "e"). (I hope I don't sound like I'm being critical.) Apparently PlantFiles is pretty fussy regarding spelling. You know the part where it says "DO YOU MEAN..."? You'd think it would offer the correct spelling as an alternative since it's only one letter off, but it doesn't. Instead it offers English Iris and Kingfisher Daisy as alternatives. Go figure....(I hope I'm making sense.)

I have grown the vinca once from seed. Don't remember any details on how I did it, but i doubt I was incredilby lucky. Probably fairly easy.

The vincas do very well in sun/part sun here, Tir. Just make sure their feet stay dry - a raised bed or well draining pot. Dianthus (the pink) does well, too. I haven't tried either of the daisies.

Several years ago I started painted daisies from seed and transplanted them in the front by our mailbox at the curb, they did well for years, but now have all but disappeared. I am going to start a new batch and get them established again. They are so pretty and i like the early blooms.
I had English daisies, but they lasted only two seasons.
