Impatiens omeiana
Common Name: Perennial Impatiens Family: Balsaminaceae (The Jewelweed Family)

Impatiens omeiana
Zoom In Photo:

From China's Mt. Omei, where it grows among rhododendrons and tiarellas, comes this lovely perennial impatiens. The foliage is dark velvety green with a wide, whitish stripe down the centre. The yellow flowers occur in early fall though this is mainly a foliage plant. I. omeiana is stoloniferous, and when happy, will make delightful patches in a moist spot in the woodland garden.
