I bought some seeds from Poundland (well, at that price, it's worth having a go!) and the packet says "Balsam Camellia". Rather an odd name, and nothing I can find in my RHS books.
But, just like your pictures, Rebecca, it's quite a spectacular plant, and is doing very well. The packet says it will flower from June to October - so it will be nice if there is still some colour on it in the early autumn. I shall certainly grow it again.
