I've not experienced impatiens in this area self-sowing...

This spring I noticed a few growing - and weeded around
them - and although they aren't spectacular - I'm happy
with the result.

These are my impatiens growing along a retaining wall last year:

Awwww, ain't they sweet?? The colors aren't exactly the

So, they WILL self sow in Z5.
