IMPATIENS NAMCHABARWENSIS BLUE DIAMOND
Hidden in a remote part of Tibet in the Himalayas lies the world's deepest canyon, the uninhabited Tsangpo gorge, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon! And discovered there as recently as 2003, in the barely-explored Namcha Barwa Canyon was an extremely rare beauty, the first ever, deep blue impatiens that also happens to be easy to grow! This fantastic, fast-growing plant has sizeable flowers of the most remarkable sapphire blue with a contrasting white throat, amidst attractive serrated leaves the colour of polished jade. Unlike the traditional flat-disk shape of other bedding impatiens, these constantly-produced flowers resemble elegant cranes in flight. This priceless new gem is a perennial species when grown indoors or perhaps in very mild winter areas. (aka Blue Dream)
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them in a cool place (not a fridge) onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. Unlike the more common annual impatiens, these fresh seeds can be very, very slow indeed to germinate, usually taking several months. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur.
