This fantastic, incredibly rare, fast-growing plant has flowers of the most remarkable sapphire blue with a contrasting white throat, amidst attractive serrated leaves the colour of polished jade. No photoshop-colour needed! 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 this unbelievable beauty, the first ever deep blue impatiens, that also happens to be easy to grow! Unlike the traditional flat-disk shape of bedding impatiens, these constantly-produced flowers resemble elegant cranes in flight. This priceless new gem (aka Blue Dream) is a perennial species when grown indoors or perhaps outdoors in very mild winter areas. Once you have a plant, to overwinter and make sure you do not lose it, stem cuttings are quick and easy to root. This can be easily done either in water in spring, or in damp sand or gravel in autumn. We regret that just a few hundred small viable seeds are available, and these have to be slowly and laboriously individually collected here, hence the high price. We have recently been informed that other online sellers from around the world may NOT be selling or supplying either fresh seeds or the true seeds, so please be aware.

Sowing Advice

Sow as soon as received onto soil/coir/peat/loam based, (NOT pure peat) compost in a cool bright place, with a naturally varying, cold-cool temperature from 0 to 20C. Leave uncovered or BARELY cover with fine sand or grit. COOL germinators. Seeds NEED to see light to initiate germination. Do not allow to dry out. These perennial plant seeds can be very slow to germinate, up to 6-12 months or more. Do not discard seed pans! They do NOT need artificial heat to germinate. Grown, freshly collected by us, and cold-stored here. We re-grow fresh new plants from our own seed each year.
