 any new plant from a rooted cutting will not be so dwarf, mine are growing to near normal size Budleja, 5 to 6 ft

See original post

 this shouldn't be the case. A rooted cutting is a clone and identical to the parent, it's how most shrub cultivars are maintained from one generation to the next.

seedlings will give you something different

No flowers on my Cosmos !!

agree with Verdun re feeding. Don't.

Flowering and seeding is a plant's response to challenges, starvation, drought etc

lots of leaves is the response to an easy life with plenty to eat and drink

GD you're right that the first is a geranium. The 'endressii' and 'oxonianum' mentioned by Ladybird and me are geraniums. We're were just discussing which one. 

and eschscholzia = Californian poppy

What's devoured my sunflower?

I'd leave that there and de-sensitise yourself wakeshine. It's just a sunflower with a bit missing. what remains will make seed for the birds

It may get a lot bigger yet but 'tree' is a bit OTT.

They germinate at any time from spring and just keep growing for some weeks. The young stage is the most attractive, once they've been flowering for a while they are less colourful.

and they make millions of seeds

geraniums have 5 petals

poppies have 4 but so do a lot of other flowers, need leaves

my guess is those asters are from mixed annuals and won't have names

the geranium looks like endressii or one of the x oxonianums. Or maybe just a seedling of something.

The one with the red leaves is a persicaria possibly affinis

need some leaves on the white one but might be a poppy

Yes, they're asters 

flowers for digitalis
