(aka: Impatiens sp. CPC 19.4.01 #1A) This Darrell Probst collection comes from China's rich Sichuan Province. Thanks to Derick (Mr. Impatiens) Pittman for identifying this as Impatiens pritzelii. Impatiens 'Sichuan Gold' has performed quite well in our trials, spreading from underground stolons to form a nice open colony of stalks that play well with others. Slightly moist soils are best but not necessary. The 18" tall stalks are clothed with green leaves and are topped, starting in mid-June and continuing into October (NC), with 3" branched flower stalks of large yellow flowers. You can forget about trying to root cuttings of this one...divisions only. In trials it has survived -18 degrees F in Minnesota with no snow cover...amazing!
