PURPLE IMPATIENT

Actually, it's just a simple flower from the road side.
I took some seeds of this impatient from the road side several months ago.
It's an easy growing plant.



Here, we call it 'Kembang Pacar'.
Kembang Pacar (Impatient balsamina) is mostly grow wildly on the roadside, especially on the humid or damp area.


I took it to add more shade of color on my garden, but now they are growing like crazy on my terrace garden.
The old ripen fruit will be broken and the seeds will be thrown away, and then grounded, next the favorable place and weather will stimulate self seedling.


Now, my terrace garden full of purple color from this impatient.


Beautiful, but I should pull out some of them, because they are taking over some pot plants and growing wildly like as weed.

  1. But when they're so pretty it's a shame to get rid of them!

  2. They are pretty but.....we have them too in the wild and a long time ago I took seeds with me for the garden.....Every year new plants come up and I pull them out, because they are invasive, like weeds

  4. That looks very similar to Himalayan balsam that grows wild here and is considered a nuisance plant as it is a prolific spreader,
