Thanks all!

It is just a small cutting so it's in the kitchen window.

It's quite striking! The black background shows it off to great effect! I have some Impatiens at home (Busy Lizzies). They are self-sown plants as I had lots of them growing on the balcony last year. I find they spring up in the most weird places! I have a flowering plant in a pot with a Geranium!

Thanks Balcony! This rarely seems to set seed sadly.

Exciting! Meanie.

How did you come by the plant, Meanie? Shame it doesn't set seed as it's a very interesting flower & quite unusual!

DD - I'll be trying it as bedding next year!

Balcony - it was a cutting sent to me by someone on another forum.

Very kind of them! I've also received plants that way & have sent people cuttings & bulbs as well as seeds on other gardening forums (like I have on this one, too!)
