me again...Lobelia rainbow cascade

planted these seeds ages and ages ago, only 2 have grown and so I now have 2 seedlings one is about 20cms high the other is nearly 30cms high!!
when they said cascade I presumed it meant like hanging over, but these are like little trees straight up.
they have started to show some sign of flower buds at the top, but what now?
I dont really know where to put them and wont just chuck them its seems to wasteful

They grow upright to start with and then flop over and cascade down, if that's what you've really got growing.

oh mookins, that last 3rd of Bamboo's comment just made me smile. How sure are you on a scale of 1 to 10?!
No offence, and maybe you have planted the right thing. I mix them up all the time - my cousin thought I'd given her a pot of young turnip plants, but no they turn out to be white radish...
