Sarah Berhardt, big blowsy light pink petals that are too heavy for the stems to hold up? That's the one I've got, it was a Gardeners' World offer a few years ago. I'd prefer a single flower one that doesn't flop
I hate those things, they are trip hazards
Are you thinking of bedding plants? What do you class as too high?
This has posted itself lots of times can you try to delete the duplicates?
I think they were a bit of a one hit wonder, but did do albums. You can find their music on youtube
Most diseases tend to be crop specific so something that isn't in the curcurbit family should be fine
