Impatiens tinctoria

Impatiens on steroids? This species comes from high elevation Africa and is hardy to at least 20 degrees…Thick upright stems emerge from tubers and can grow 6-8’ tall. Orchid like FRAGRANT blooms to 4” across look like pure white butterfly wings stained red in the center, very striking! Flowers mid-summer thru fall. Bright shade, moist well drained soil, regular feeding…does well in a BIG pot and under glass. Prefers cooler climates and humidity.
