Mystery flower

Last fall I planted some seeds and now have a gorgeous flower, but no idea what it is. If someone can help, that would be great. I overseeded and now some are tall and strong, others are tiny. Not sure if can put the smaller ones in pots and give them away, or if the smaller ones are weak and should be thinned out.

The colour of the leaves is pale green and the bud hangs down. The flower is a reddish-pink with a green centre.

The picture is here:

Thank you!
