Impatiens balansae


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An exciting tender perennial Impatiens from Vietnam we brought in via the UK. Deep green leaves with magenta undersides on a stout 3'-4' upright plant are quite enough but add the late orange-yellow flowers with red lips and be ready for involuntary expletives and religious exhortations. We saw this in the wild and were blown away. We overwinter ours in a cool greenhouse. Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Collection
