    Yes nemophilia 5spot, clever ladybird knows the proper name. I grow them from seed every year very easily. Good ground cover annuals.

    Hi Deb's,yeah just noticed that the are all seeds,very pretty. I thought a bit like a geranium.expect it's too late to sow this year. When ever I find a plant I like in a garden,it will be the only one not labelled!

    @Nanny Beach they germinate quickly and with this delayed summer maybe worth a go? The seeds are pretty cheap I think and have lots in so my packets last 2 years. The bees love them.
