I find seeds I sow outside do often take a couple of years.

Dark, chocolatey red is more likely to be the Annual Scabious (Scabiosa atropurpurea).

well that explains it Drc, and the S.atropurpurea turned up right next to the perennial scabious Tug, so i will take note and put it in reminders to check up on next year.
thanks both
