Hi all,

I have tons of Impatiens Balsamina seeds. They are absolutely beautiful. Their flowers are tucked under umbrella-like leaves and bees just love to crawl inside to drink their nectar. They're only supposed to grow to about 30" tall, but some of mine have reached 4'. I don't know what their blooming season is but mine have bloomed from mid spring to early fall (zone 5b). I love sitting next to them and listening to the bees buzzing.

These are annuals, but they reseed themselves so you'll have new ones every season and, if you're into supporting bees, you can easily spread the seeds around to appropriate areas. I've read that they grow well in zones 2-11.

If you'd like seeds, let me know how I can get them to you and I'll be happy to send them!

Thank you! I'd love some coneflower and sneezeweed seeds! Let's exchange addresses via tree mail, and I'll get those balsamina seeds out to you next week.
