@greenroomgarden yes. Old fashioned impatients. Yes. They are prolific seeders. I generally try to catch the seeds in a jar. Although they handle standing water so i started some in my rain gardens to replace the swamp milkweed. I have to move the milkweed to higher ground so the caterpillars will not drown from the storm water.
I love the idea of rain gardens — that sounds wonderful. I had a pot of pale white/pink balsam two years ago, and it self-seeded into a glorious riot throughout my patio last year...but then only a single plant this year. I’m trying to figure out what might’ve happened, and I love the colors you’ve got...going to be scouring the seed catalogs! Thanks. 😀
@greenroomgarden did you try emailing me? I have had some crazy things happen with rescuing a Sr stray cat from the streets. I got him into ruff start dog rescue but he bit me and now I am stuck in the hospital. So I won the war but lost the battle. However Mr stray cat is also stuck at the vets because of health issues.
Oh no!! I’m so sorry to hear that - did the bite get infected, then? Many kudos for taking care of poor Mr. Sr. Stray kitty, and glad you’re both getting care. I did try emailing, and was going to check in... I did titlow@ the suffix you gave, and was wondering if I misunderstood. Please advise, but only when things calm down for you a bit! 😀 Get well soon.
