I think the second might be the one that has darkish pink flowers, rather a pungent smell and has running white roots. Can't bring any of it's names to mind though

Hi Tracy, all the ones I've tried have been very easy. Sow now, leave somewhere out of the sun. They'll either germinate very quickly or in spring. No heat required.

I generally bring all my set seeds into the cold GH in January but that's more for my convenience than theirs.

I was disappointed Verdun. I had great hopes for griffithii.

I may have another try and keep it in a pot so I can protect it in the winter.

Is this Japanese Knotweed? - please help

There's a mixture of things in the top pic, something with  a couple of red berries and some purplish flowers, they won't belong to the same plant. Nothing remotely like JKW.

I couldn't keep that one. Easy from seed but didn't last once I'd planted them out.

There's also C. plumbaginoides, a spreader with amazing red purple leaves with the blue flowers. Nice in a pot and more likely to have the coloured leaves if  a bit starved and dry

Benches can look really stylish but they don't offer much comfort do they?

I should think it's willmottianum then chicky. Flowers for ages and popular with insects including the hummingbird hawkmoth. Very easy to grow.

For real hardiness you want C hederifolium or C. coum. Not as extreme in colour but will be with you for years
