Impatiens mirabilis - growing tips ?

davidiaSeptember 7, 2006

I've recently acquired some seedlings of the caudiciform Impatiens mirabilis - does any one have any experience with growing this plant ? Do they need full sun or will partial shade do ?

I believe partial shade is best. I do know that they can grow in the cracks of rocks in sun but this is near the ocean, further inland shade is best.
