Himalayan Impatients

cheryl58gram(z2Saskatchewan)September 22, 2005

I would like my two cents worth about the Himalayan Impatients or at least that is what I call them. I have grown them for about five years now, they are a thrill everytime they poke their heads above the ground come spring. I always recall the first time that I popped one of the seed heads, it scared me half to death the way it exploded.

They are a beautiful tall flowering plant that really thrives in most conditions and heat.

Try them you will love them.
