WHO NEEDS GEMS WHEN YOU HAVE BOTANICAL JEWELS.
Jewelweed is one common name and they really are jewels of the plant world... not so sure about the weeds part. Impatiens are a huge diverse group of plants native to north and southern hemisphere from tropical to temperate areas. The amazing fact about Impatiens is that because they can replicate themselves via seed so quickly they have evolved quicker than other plants so quick that there is over 1000 species! All have flowers that are orchid like and fairly easy to look after too. We (think) we have one of the largest collections in the UK, if you have some perennial species that are not on the list? We want to hear from you about a possible acquisition of a cutting!
