Impatiens species ex. China Darrell Probst Collection
A new introduction and an as yet unnamed, hardy, perennial species collected from Sichuan, China by Darrell Probst (it bears similarities to I. qingchengshanica ‘Emei Dawn’ but it is not the same plant). Produces deep green, thick, serrated leaves and large, pretty, pink, orchid-like flowers with upturned spurs from late summer into late autumn from underground creeping rhizomes. Height 50 cm. Moist, humus rich, well-drained soil in part to full shade in a cool position. Hardy to -12 C (possibly more) in the ground with a winter mulch. If pot grown, it requires full protection from frosts.
