Okay, don't laugh at me....I get excited and throw seeds into containers and don't label them or anything.....once a plant flowers I'm pretty good with an ID generally, but I don't know what this is:

The top one is Cleome, or Spider flower. Not sure about the other one...looks like it could be a celosia or an amaranthus.

Awesome Alan! Thank you, at least now I know I have a box full of Cleomes!

I've only ever had one of those before so that's why they probably did't look to familiar to me. thumbup

Every year I say I'll label my seeds, and each year that comes and goes I don't! touched

I know! I know! Ummm. It's ummmm. SHoot. You can grow it in the water as a marginal plant. I'll look it up and find it for you. I was really close to getting one a few weeks ago at the nursery. Shoot.
