Gardeners' Notes:

Positive congminglaoshi On Jul 4, 2007, congminglaoshi from Tuckahoe, NY wrote:

Hard to get, but easy to grow. Self seeds readily, seeds survive cold winters to germinate in spring. Rootstock not perennial (in cold winter climates) nor fleshy, as sometimes reported. Main pest is spider mites. Blooms when young and will bloom until frost unless weather is really hot. This will become much more widespread in the future on account of its ease of propagation and intriguing flower color (sometimes more violet blue than blue, but still unique for impatiens). Much better bloomer than I. arguta, a near relative.
Native to a single river gorge in Tibet in which China plans to build a huge dam in the future, which may destroy its habitat.
