The plant looks scraggly and flowers are tiny! You have to get really close to them to actually see the flowers.

Is that lovely purple one an anomaly? And is this an ephemeral?

I really don't know if the color is an anomaly or not .. I only grew them once and was so underwhelmed (I imagine a very large mass of them would look nice) I never grew them again. If I remember correctly, once the temperatures got into the 80's they kind of shriveled up and died.
