Annuals Can be Perennials in South Florida

Back from the dead, this lovely group of Impatiens was planted in the spring of 2010.  By the end of August the heat was too much for them and they pretty much wilted away.  Forgotten and neglected during the rest of the summer and the occassional cold spells we had during our winter, I thought  I would find a plant when I went to clean out the container. However this little beauty thrived and has returned to life this spring. 

And I thought Impatiens were annuals... lol!

  1. I know a lot of my annuals come back, but didn't think about the impatiens coming back, too. The next time something croaks, I'm leaving it alone! Very pretty impatiens!
