Impatiens or Busy Lizzie

I'd like to show you my Impatiens (Balsamens or Busy Lizzie). These plants grew and blossomed in my garden in May - September, now they are in the city, enjoying the sun rays through the windows. They are delicate plants and don't winter in the garden. They are three, of different colors.  




Impatiens flowers painted in bright colors, develop on the branches in early summer. They attract swarms of insects.
According to the shape of the flower, Impatiens are divided into: rose-shaped, camelli
a-shaped and carnation-shaped. The plant loves warmth and plentiful watering. Now Impatiens is so popular in gardens and homes that new varieties and hybrids are constantly appearing.







Happy Garden Blog day!

  3. My husband used to plant impatiens in pots every spring and we would place them around the house outside as they do well in the shade. I have not been gardening this year as I am still trying to move the GA house. I enjoyed looking at your pretty pictures in Prague, your beautiful flowers and also mushrooms.

    1. Vagabonde, I'm pleased you have read my previous posts. Inpatiens bloom well in a shady place, I agree.
      Hope you will have finished your moving to the new house by New year.

  7. Hello Nadezda!

    Your Impatiens are very beautiful. They need a lot of water I guess. I had some of them before, and they was always so thirsty. Nice to have them indoors in October. I have taken my camellias and hortensias indoor in my basement. It's still warm weather here, and 12 degrees yesterday.
    Have a nice week.
    Hugs!

    1. We need to transfer tender plants to store inside in our climate, Marit. As you did with your camellias and hydrangeas. My hydrangeas winter in the garden they are hardy. But Impatiens are not :-(. Today is +5 C and forecast snow this week.

    1. Yes, Anita. Now my concern is to help them to winter at home and to return to the garden in spring.

    1. So will I, Ida. The wintertime indoors is difficult for plants, warm, dry air and a bit of light.

  17. I know them as a house plant, and have never thought to put them into the garden. I'll try next year, and see if they attract lots of bees. When I kept them as houseplants, (years ago) I seem to remember that they flowered constantly.

    1. No sabia, Teresa y pienso que el nombre refleja completamente la naturaleza de la planta, que florece en los meses oscuros.

  19. Nadezda, my Impatiens were good this year too.I hadn't thought about bringing them inside for winter. I don't have any room for them inside. I will definitely get more next year. I love that orange one. One of my favorite colors. Happy GBBD.

    1. Lisa, they do well inside too.If you want to have some more next year you could get cuttings and push them in one pot together for rooting. I love their colors as well.

  24. I haven't had a chance to eat buckwheat porridge. It's very interesting to know when we live in different places, same materials are cooked in different ways. Have a nice weekend.
