Balsam Camellia Flowered HEIRLOOM Seeds

Impatiens balsamina

Item #1298

Annual. 'Camellia Flowered' balsam has clusters of richly colored, double flowers that look like little roses peeking out among the leaves. It’s easy to grow in any rich, moist soil in a shady or sunny garden, practically care-free, and blooms from summer into fall. Plant in groups to create an eye-catching swath of color that lures butterflies and other pollinators. Also called Lady Slippers, or Touch-Me-Not because its seeds spring out of ripened pods with the slightest touch.
