I saw this yellow impatient at a local garden show.
Does anyone know the name of this impatient or where I can purchase seeds?
I'm not too good at sending photos so please look under plant ID to find picture.

RE: yellow impatiens?

Your pic is of Impatiens Fusion yellow. It is being released this year and is only avaiable as a pot plant. It wont make seed. Its a cross of walleriana and auricoma. Its very similar to Seashells yellow but it is a bigger plant with nicer flowers.

RE: yellow impatiens?

Thank you very much for the information. I now know what this impatient is called so I can search for plants.
It was a very striking plant and I would really want to acquire some when they become available.
Thanks again.

I am trying a yellow this year called Jungle Gold. I got the seeds from Vesey's. You can see the plant at The seedlings are great - good germination, strong, stocky. I haven't seen any bloom yet but they are very good so far.

RE: yellow impatiens?

Blondie and Jungle Gold are the same plant just renamed.
It was released as Blondie then it was sold to another company who changed it to Jungle Gold.

Oh I just saw that at a garden center friday and was getting on this forum to ask about it too! It was so lovely, they had a peach one too that was stunning. The garden ctr I was at only offered them in hanging pots though... pretty expensive ; (
