Once there were two distinct hardy annuals, clarkia and godetia, and although they looked very similar, gardeners could tell the difference and grew both. Now they have merged: they are all botanically called clarkia and the common name is godetia. This particular plant is the old Godetia grandiflora, a great favourite in Victorian times as a potplant as well as for planting in borders. The large, single flowers in rich salmon pink with white edges, are extravagantly frilled and nearly 5cm (2in) across. Sow in autumn for early flowers, and in spring and summer for succession.
