Thanks! The original plant was purchased in 1994 or 1995. I've taken cutting for all those years...the Impatiens plants usually live for 3 - 5 years.

Thank you Delonix for that info. I shall be looking out for this one, and do as you do take cuttings, did nt realise they only had 3 to 5 years life, but I supose like all plants they die evenually out flower themselves.

You're welcome! :>)

These Impatiens usually are grown as annuals in most cooler/colder climates. They usually live only 3 - 5 years because the stems get slightly woody and the bugs attack them. The same thing happens to my Coleus also.

I have grown this one, as like you very fond of variegated plants.

This is my favorite Impatiens! It's so easy to grow and blooms all year. It makes a good filler in the yard, in sun or shade.

We would have to bring them inside in the winter now, a few years ago they would have survived quite easily.

Would you by any chance still have this variegated Impatiens? I got a starting from a lady friend in NE Ohio and she got hers from an elderly lady that has passed away. My friend and I both lost ours. I've been hunting this particular variegated Impatiens for years and I can't seem to find it to purchase any place.

I am in a lot of garden groups on Facebook and I've posted this plant asking around, but no one has ever seen anything like it before.

Thank you for any feedback.
