Which Impatiens species are fragrant?

Ispahan Zone6a ChicagoAugust 28, 2004

I recently obtained an I. tinctoria on the promise that it was fragrant. Are there any other impatiens out there that are scented?

Thanks in advance,

There arent many really tinctoria is yes I have tested it myself. Very nice. Impatiens glandulifer is as well some people like it. The smell is not bad but a little strange not a very floral smell. You notice it when you walk by it in the evening. Can get big nearly 8 feet and is hardy into Canada.
