Blue Flowered Impatiens namchabawensis in bloom!

I managed to locate seeds for these this past winter in the UK and they germinated easily. The color is unreal, just as you see it here- sky blue!

They seem to like open shade, at least here in central Maryland.

I have one planted in a pot with Impatiens Seashell 'Papaya'-should be a great combo!

enjoy

Nice pics.

Yes, this is the great 'Blue Diamond' Impatiens - Impatiens namchabarwensis.

It is often misspelled as Impatiens namchabawensis.

This new species was discovered in the Namchabarwa canyon in Tibet in the summer of 2003

Flowers are bright ultramarine blue, with small white markings at center and yellow in throat.

Trangran: I have seeds to impatiens balsamina in a coral color, as well as seeds for impatiens glandulifera (wine red policeman's helmet impatiens) if you're interested. I'm quite interested in working out some sort of trade with you; I have a special favor to ask of anyone living in Wales!

Impatiens namchabarwensis looks so cool, are they easy to grow?

RE: Blue Flowered Impatiens namchabawensis in bloom!

yes, they have been very easy for me. However they did stop blooming for a few weeks when the temps were around 100. They are blooming like crazy now.

I too have been taken by the namchabawensis beauty. If anyone can help me to find plants I would be eternally grateful. I seem to have a black thumb for seeds.

You might want to try Cistus Nursery and Annies Annuals in the spring. I dont know if they will be in the catalog, you may have to ask. I do know they do have some.
