Is this an astrantia seedling?

I planted what I thought were astrantia "Ruby Cloud " seeds but I don't think these are?
What could they be?

    You’re right! Definitely doesn’t look like astrantia. The leaves look completely different

    I've not grown them in many years, but they look a bit like Zinnia seedlings from memory

    Zinnia or maybe antirrhinum.

  • Thank you for attempting to identify my seedlings. I am growing zinnias and antirrhinum and they are definitely not like them. They look a bit petunia-like. I guess I am going to have to grow them till they flower and then I may be able to identify them.

    I am almost certain they are the Antirrhinum, I looked at mine and they’re the same.

  • Thanks, Lyn. I hope you are right. The plants I have been nurturing, thinking they were antirrhinum are probably verbena. Each year I promise myself I will get the labelling right but somehow things get mixed up.
