Impatiens niamniamensis

 

Parrot Plant

Impatiens is a beautiful annual that provides colourful flowers to enliven beds, borders, window boxes and tubs throughout summer and into early autumn. Impatiens like shade and moisture. If wilted, they quickly recover back into shape after watering. 'Niamniamensis' is an unusual plant with copious amount of pendulous flowers, shaped like parrot heads, with a yellow base turning to a bright red down to the end of the 'beak'.
