Inside Impatien Impatient #WordlessWednesday

I can never quite let go of summer.

Every fall, before our first frost, I attempt some cuttings.  This past fall, my coleus cuttings failed but I managed to root a couple of impatiens.  These wonderful shade loving blooming plants were a victim of a blight several years back that affected many gardeners (including me) and prevented us from growing this jewel, but we now have a resistant variety called Beacon.  So, impatiens are back in my flower garden.

For the second year, I grew Beacon, and for the first time, I was successful in rooting two cuttings in water.

Here they are, in bloom in a north facing window. waiting patiently for the last frost.  In our area, that won't be until some time in May.

I can't wait.

Joining up with Sandee at Comedy Plus for her #WordlessWednesday.


  1. ...the blight I that was going to put an end to impatiens.

  2. I'm glad for you! Your flower is beautiful. I love this color!
    Yesterday I changed a few plants in new pots and I was very happy finding two small buds to one of them...
    Happy WW and a fabulous spring!

  3. Beautiful and I'm glad you will have them in your garden again. Well done.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  4. Impatiens are so pretty, I love those little pink blooms.

  5. Wonderful. Dad will learn this some day

  6. They are a pretty colour. I used to grow them in my borders until they kept getting blight. Maybe it is time to try again with a resistant variety.

  7. Such a gorgeous color! I've not had any luck with them. We too have the blight. I shall have to see if I can find a resistant variety this year! Have a marvellously happy day!

  8. Congrats, Alana! I am a horrible gardener. I keep saying when we move I want to do this and that and maybe the soil will be better at our next place. I sure hope so because I love pretty flowers. :)
