Similar to better known Impatiens omeiana and at least as hardy, this forms slow spreading patches of olive leaves and big creamy yellow flowers with orange-brown speckles to 40cm. Good soil in shade.
The flowers are a delightful light yellow which is richer further back, the inside of the flower has a fine array of speckles.
A super addition to a shady border with decent soil that preferably doesn't dry out, Impatiens pritzelii 'Sichuan Gold' is a good companion to other typical shade plants such as Epimedium, Poylgonatum and ferns. Useful as the flowers are produced in late summer and autumn, until the frosts, which is much later than most woodland perennials.
Collected in Sichuan, China by Darrell Probst.
Achillea 'Inca Gold'£4.50
Brilliant light orange flowers with red tints, fade to a soft yellow over lovely greyish foliage. Neat clumps and one of the best in our opinion! Drained soil in full sun, divide and replant every 3 years. 75cm.
Impatiens omeiana 'Red Leaf'£6.50
Very attractive red flushed exotic foliage on bright red stems to 25cm on this form of hardy Impatiens. Best in good leafy soil in shade.
Stipa gigantea 'Gold Fontaene'£8.50
AGM A selection from Ernst Pagels with larger bronze-gold panicles up to 50cm long on 2.5m tall stems. Rather more imposing than the species. Can reflower in autumn. Drained soil in sun.
