Question (Q): I sowed a wildflower mix I bought at a garden center. It has done well and has lots of things blooming now. Can you help me identify a flower in it? It has bright red or pink flowers with large, silky, delicate petals with white crosses at the center. The stems and foliage are kind of hairy. I have never seen these or some of the other flowers before. Are they actual wildflowers?
