Yellow flowered Impatiens mirabilis aff


This is one of the several caudiciform Impatiens I have right now - it may be Impatiens mirabilis or something closely related to it. The inflorescence is sequentially flowering and the caudex fist size and corky. I am not sure how large it can grow but a true I. mirabilis is of tree-like proportion. Many new caudiciform Impatiens are being discovered in this part the world as I speak and this could well be one of the new discoveries - I am including more pics here with the hope of someone suggesting an ID one day.

Generally caudiciform Impatiens are difficult - some of them just die without rhyme or reason. This species seems easier than others, it even produced a crop of viable seedlings for me !

The flowers are too small to be mirbilis I think and the long inflorescence does not look like mirabilis also. Anyway, let me know of there's any one to spare.

I know absolutely nothing about these plants, but it is quite a remarkable specimen. The form of the flower is unusual... is this to attract a specific polinator?

Actually its related to the jewelweed of USA - Impatiens capensis. I have seen plenty of them around in upstate NY area during warmer months.

You can know more from Derrick's website http://www.mrimpatiens.com/

Can a person drool over pictures of plants? YES!!! i am SO very glad and look forward to thoroughly enjoying the wonderful plants you've photographed so beautifully! i am a fervent fan of GOD's nature, its diversity and colors and indescribable magnificence -- and in your macro shots, you express the details of His handiwork that leaves me praising Him even more so. Thank you for sharing your GOD-given talent and love for the things of His Creation.
