Can anyone help identify my fledging perennials...

I got these perennials as mini plugs via a telegraph offer but stupidly threw the box away without naming them... Can anyone tell me what they are so I can work out where to plant them out.  Thanks

    No they came as mini plugs on one of those pay postage get plants free offer... to be honest they've done better than I thought as I don't have a greenhouse and just had them on the windowsill

    The third one will either be Echinacea,helenium or my best guess is penstemon.I have  bought similar plugs in post like these.the first two seem right,but I think the last one could be verbena will be exciting for you to see how they turn out

    I got the same offer - so I can tell you exactly!

    Geum - Mrs Bradshaw

    Foxgloves - Excelsior

    Coreopsis - Sunray

    Nepeta - Mussini

    Hope that helps !! I have been really pleased with how mine have grown - they were really tiny when they arrived.
