Today's Flowers - Impatiens

Impatiens flowers take their name from the Latin, impatiens, "impatient." They are being called because their ripe seed pods will sometimes burst when slightly touch. Perhaps they are too impatient to reproduce. :) There are many species of impatiens flowers, often misspelled as "impatience" or "impatients".

I came across these appealing flowers spreading out before the eye at Cactus Valley. As the name implies, they could be suitable and a great remedy for a person who is impatient and frustrated. That said, I'm totally the impatient one! Perhaps, I should plant them too. :)

  2. These don't seem to do well in the heat of Southern Oregon's summers. They are available in baskets, but don't really look goo for too long. Unfortunate as they are beautiful when healthy.

  9. I'm quite impatient too LR! Maybe I should get a basket or two of those flowers.
    Though come to think about it, they'll probably die in less than a week.
    Green thumb, I certainly am not! LOL
