Impatiens niamniamensis (Impatiens niamniamensis (Parrot Plant))

Tender, but it makes an impressive bedding plant in a shady spot. This was just a single stem back in May when I planted it out.

It looks terrific! Mine died in the hot, dry weather this year. You're so lucky to have nice moist soil...the soil here in like concrete!

It looked better before I cut a load off for cuttings!

I know they're so easy from cuttings. I used to have many.

Unfortunately, I won't get any more new plants until the severe drought is over. It's senseless.

I would gladly give you our rain!

It would be greatly appreciated. :>)

We may actually get some rain showers this coming Saturday. I hope it happens!

We could potentially get some good rains this winter season. The Pacific Ocean temps along the San Diego coast is still an amazing 70 - 73ºF (21 - 23ºC), very warm for this time of year. Forecasters say El Niño is very weak...however, it appears to be strong along the California coast. Strong El Niño means more rain.
