Balsam Bizzy Lizzy (Impatients Walleriana) 80 seeds (#967)

Impatiens is the most popular annual bedding plant in the U. S. today. For easy-to-grow, non-stop flowering in shady conditions, it has no equal.
It is a bushy, succulent-stemmed tender perennial that grows in a spreading mound. Showy, slender-spurred, five-petaled red flowers typically cover the plants with colorful bloom from June to frost. Single flowers have a distinctively flattened appearance. Ovate to elliptic leaves are light green to dark green, sometimes with a bronze-red cast.
Succeeds in any reasonably good soil. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Prefers a moist well-drained humus rich soil in a cool site.
Succeeds in sun or semi-shade. Plants are not frost hardy, but can be grown outdoors in Britain by sowing the seed in a greenhouse and planting out after the last expected frosts.
This plant has seed capsules that spring open forcibly as the seed ripens to eject the seed a considerable distance. The capsules are sensitive to touch even before the seed is ripe, making seed collection difficult but fun.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Balsam is a prolific self-sower. After one season of growth, it generally reappears from self sown seeds the next year.
After frost has passed, scatter seeds where desired, or sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last spring frost.
Do not cover the seeds with soil, as they need light to germinate.
Until the seeds germinate, cover the seed trays with clear plastic to maintain high humidity. Water from below to prevent damping off.
Germination temperature: +18+24C.
Germination time: 14-21 days.
