This little beauty only seems to want to grow in deep shade. The flowers are about the size of a quarter. It reseeds itself in a damp shady area but I have not had any luck transplanting volunteers to any other shade far! The seeds are so tiny I have not managed to collect any and my biggest fear is that each year it may not come back! I would sure like to give this charming little beauty a name so if it vanishes I can search for seed. Does anyone know this one?

It looks like an Impatiens, sorry I don't know which one.

Thanks Baa I have a lot of different impatiens but this little charmer does not match any I have found so far.

It is a charmer and I've run a search because I'm sure I have seen this one before so it may be an Impatiens balfourii.
