    One seedling. One plant with several flowers. Sometimes they survive the winter but not often and sometimes they self seed.
    I would plant them in a group with about 6-8 inches between them.
    Before you plant them, see if there is what looks like a teabag around the roots. Tease it off gently if you can without damaging the roots. If you can't get it iff, damage the bag as much as you can. This will allow the roots to escape.

    thanks
    great I do that 😊
    that’s ok if they don’t come up next year as sort of changed my mind about them 
    so next year looking for something more modern than them 
    but white and tallish

    Well, you never know, you may grow to love them😊
    Keep them watered and dead-headed and they will flower for longer
