Double Camelia Mix Balsam

Impatiens balsamina

 

One of the easiest flowers to grow, it makes an excellent choice for a child's garden. Flowers are early, prolific, and produce an abundance of blooms in the white-rose-red spectrum. The flowers are right in the leaf axils. This double flower is more impressive than the single varieties.  70 seeds

    Pure joy!

    Every seed planted germinated, almost immediately. Started half indoors and sowed the rest directly in the ground in mid May. It's mid June and we have blooms! I love them! Hoping they will self seed but will happily buy from you next year. Thank you for doing what you do. All of the seed stock I bought from you this year had terrific germination rates. This is the first crop I could legitimately review. Can't wait for everything else to come in. Thank you !

    Easily seen from a distance and grow in part shade or full sun

    This has grown for us for years in Delaware Zone 6 reseeding itself beautifully against the house getting only AM sun and in the main garden getting full sun. You can snip away some of the leaves to fully expose the flowers for better viewing.
