Impatiens balsamina - Balsam

This is a listing for 100 seeds of this showy annual.

Impatiens balsamina (garden balsam, garden jewelweed, rose balsam, touch-me-not) is a species of Impatiens native to southern Asia in India and Burma. Other common names include elepe in Hawaiian, mírame lindo in Spanish, bongseonhwa in Korean, and kamantigi in Chamorro.

It is an annual plant growing to 20–75 cm tall, with a thick, but soft stem. The leaves are spirally-arranged, 2.5–9 cm long and 1–2.5 cm broad, with a deeply toothed margin. The flowers are red, pink, purple, or white, and 2.5–5 cm diameter; they are pollinated by bees and other insects, and also by nectar-feeding birds. The ripe seed capsules undergo explosive dehiscence.

Ideal for open bedding, dot plants, small groups or growing in containers and pots.  It will flower continually (with dead heading) until the first frosts.  If grown in pots and protected from frost, the plant will continue flowering late into the year.
