I think so. We have a variety of them in the garden. We got them in a bundle of 200+ bulbs for $10 or so. We order from them in the early Spring for summer flowers.

No maintenance. Comes back every year. Just the way I like it.

Right. SO has been working on making the garden are less labor intensive so perennials get the nod. That's augmented with annuals every year for color in shade areas.

SO has gotten creative with the area behind our townhouse. When we moved in this rock was just a rock with a depression in the middle that was filled with stagnant water. Now it's a little easier on the eyes.

Thanks, guys. Yes they are impatiens. She uses them a lot as the annual to fill in among the perennials. They do well in partial sun which we are faced with in most of the garden.

Beautiful and useful too. A rock with a depression that holds water will breed mosquitos. A rock with flowers growing out of it will breed smiles.
