I found this one in the neighborhood trash. It was very pretty when I found it and it did well for about a year. It was full and had lots of pink little flowers but it required so much water. If it didn't get enough water it would drupe (right word?) like spaghetti. If then watered again it would spring right back up within the hour. I've never seen anything like it. Anyways, I thought it would pull through but it's looking really bad now so I'm setting out to see if I can help it. First step is identifying it.

Anyone? Shrug!

Drupe - a fruit with a pit (plum, olive)

Droop - what your Impatiens is doing. Smiling

That's the word I was looking for. *Blush* Rolling on the floor laughing

Impatiens hawkeri seems to be it according a google image search. I'm so happy. Maybe I can save it.

Thank very much! Thank You!
