I think some of these may be perennials in warmer zones but in my zone they're all annuals.

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thank you! I move a lot so annuals tend to be my "bread and butter" because they bloom quickly and don't require year-to-year care except seed saving. I try to grow every color possible.
Keep going.

On second thought I might be thinking of a different variety. I haven't grown it in a few years.

Mine were dark pink with yellowish-green centers.

@longk (did I do the tagging right?) it's just a local variety of Impatiens pallida that grows behind my house. I save the seeds from it. It needs LOTS of shade and LOTS of moisture. It's native to this area but isn't very common in other places from what I gather.
Keep going.

Annuals are so great for blooming all Season! I missed out on starting a cotage garden of self-sowers and perennials this year due to indoor and outdoor projects. But those are done. So I can at least start perennials indoors for Fall transplants. The annual seeds are in the refrigerator for next Spring sowing.

I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
