Impatiens tinctoria



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An awesome - and I don't use this word lightly - hardy Impatiens from Eastern Africa. John Grimshaw in the UK speaks highly of this species. To 6' tall in morning sun or light shade with awesome (there i go again) 3" wide flat-faced white flowers with a red throat. Gorgeous. Perennial big tuberous roots. Not a seeding bully.
