Self sow impatiens - Z5 (pics)

tom8olvr(Z5 MA)August 25, 2008

I've not experienced impatiens in this area self-sowing...

This spring I noticed a few growing - and weeded around

them - and although they aren't spectacular - I'm happy

with the result.

These are my impatiens growing along a retaining wall last year:

well, the seed popped and fell into the driveway - it resulted in THIS this year:

Awwww, ain't they sweet?? The colors aren't exactly the

same - but hey, don't look 1/2 bad! I thought they were


So, they WILL self sow in Z5.
