Wonderful salmon color. One of my favorite Impatiens. Thrives in shade as long as it is kept moist. Love it!Seth, Minnesota, United States, 1 year ago
I was able to over-winter this plant once. But, I lost it last fall. I didn't it remove from the garden soon enough last fall. This is just a spectacular plant. I have been looking for it this year.Michele, 9 years ago
