True annuals, the self-branching impatiens in Balsam Camellia Flowered Mix offer summer interest, blooming until first frost in most regions. Mostly axillary, the large, camelia-like double flowers nestle among the leaves and come in shades of rose, salmon, scarlet, violet, and white. The flowers are borne singly or in small clusters of 2 to 3 blooms and attract pollinators.

The garden balsams, also known as rose balsams, in the Balsam Camellia Flowered Mix bring a touch of the tropics to summer gardens. These low maintenance plants have an open, erect, upright habit of lance-shaped, serrated, light green leaves. They grow equally well in garden or container, but plants may self-seed in warmer climates, so consider planting in a naturalized area or removing flowers before they go to seed.

Impatiens prefer full sun to part shade and organically rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. But they can tolerate shade, heat, drought, dry and damp—but not soggy—soil.

Seed can be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date and seedlings moved to the garden after the treat of frost has passed.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
