What Are the Easiest Flowers to Grow in the Garden?

I'm a first time gardener, I can't even grow an indoor plant. My friend got lots of packets of seeds, what's the easiest flowers to grow?
I was also wondering could we mix the seeds together to have all different types of flowers (if it works at all).
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hybridizing is possible but it is a lengthy process, which involves bagging the flowers to prevent "chance" pollinization. You then have to pollenate them yourself. Here is a link that should help:
