A really gorgeous 'wildflower' patch of annuals at RHS Harlow Carr yesterday. They were sown earlier in the summer. I can't think what these lovely purple, pink and white flowers are. Can anyone help?

My first guess is Rose of Heaven (Silene coeli-rosa subsp. coeli-rosa)
(formerly known as Viscaria oculata)

That really is gorgeous! Lovey dubby

Yes that certainly looks like it, many thanks! It really is delightful isn't it? Looks like lots of cosmos to come as well.
