what kind of impatiens

carloc0January 25, 2009

I received a plant from a friend which was supposed to be a Parrot Flower (impatiens psittacina) but surely was not. Anyway it grew easily in my greenhouse to a three foot plant which had a profusion of lovely pink and blue pastel flowers and typical impatiens seed pods from them. I have collected a number of seeds but how can I tell what impatiens I have? Thanks for your help.

I would need to see a picture of it to be able to tell for sure.
