Bright ccolorful flowers from spring to late summer. Also called Jewel Weed
Common name: Balsam, Touch-Me-Not
In Romania we call these plants "little peach trees" because of teir seeds. I plant them in our block's garden. Last year I planted them for the first time and I was wondering if you could tell me : it's allright if I seed the plants directly on the ground. Last year I seeded them first in a bowl and then, when the plants grew I planted them in the garden. They were allright at first, but then they got ill, the leaves were dry and had something white on them. Now I found out that it isn't good to plant them in full sun. Where do you plant them ?
Thank you for your answer. I'll follow your advice. I'll sent you a message in summer to tell you how it worked out.
@Azalea - those flowers are gorgeous! I've never seen red blooms like those before!
