Pink and Blue

Pretty Impatiens looking wonderfully Pink and Blue, just before they get pulled out in the autumn tidy up that is.
Pink and Blue

Filler plants, that's what they are. I wasn't intending on letting them stay for any longer than this season but I must say they are both looking wonderfully pretty at this time of the year.

Neither of them are herbaceous or root hardy here but the pink one reliably self seeds and lots of little ones sprout within the vicinity of the original plant next spring. I weed out all but one or two seedlings, and let that chosen one to carry on growing for the rest of the growing season.

Even if I don't pull them out the frosts will get them anyway. There has been a distinctive nip in the air lately and the presence of autumn is now unmistakeable. No frosts yet but it won't be long now before the first one arrive (although a delayed arrival will be most welcome).


Pink and Blue

But the tidy up has now begun, and just because they look pretty they have to stay. I'm not even sure if I want at least the pink one back again next year, all the seedlings may have to be pulled out too (depends on my mood then).

So what Impatiens are they? I knew at one point but I now can't recall them. But they're pretty and that's good enough. Good enough for this year at least. I'll try something else next year.

Variety is the spice of life.
