volunteer impatiens

tstrombotn(z5 OH)September 27, 2005

Last year I planted impatiens in my beds in my north facing front yard. This year I went for dianthus and Marigolds, which were ok, but needed more sunlight than they are getting. But to my amazement, I have more volunteer impatiens than I have dianthus and marigolds combined. I can't remember what kind I planted last year, but I'm thrilled at the freebies! It really looks like I planted lots and lots. Does anyone know what kind these might be, so I can get them again? Or maybe I should just transplant a few to other places where I want them. They are single impatiens, in salmon and coral, primarily. I live in Central Ohio.

Who knows what you got there. I've had some self sow too, but they didn't amount to much. As long as they look good, hey what the heck, you should experiment.
