About Balsam Seeds - Impatiens

Impatiens balsamina

Seed Type Heirloom
Also known as Spotted Snapweed

Also regularly (though controversially) called "Lady Slipper" and "Touch-Me-Not", Balsam is a classic heirloom flower that has been grown in gardens for generations. Though a sun-lover, we recommend growing Balsam in areas that receive some protections from intense, afternoon sun.
