Busy Lizzie F1 Carousel

After five months of growing, and me checking today what it was called the Busy Lizzy F1 carousel mix is in flower. Peach coloured double bloom, just the one at the moment with a bud behind it.
Gardeners need patience dont they?Having waited five months, and seen all the other plants keel over this is the survivor.
The F2's were much easier to grow, these F1's are beautifully flowered, but a nightmare to grow from seed.
Expect a few more photos as I enjoy the flowers after waiting all that time :)

Thanks Iowa Gardening Woman,Its good when your patience is rewarded and a plant grown from seed flowers.From a simple cat of planting seeds, to watering and tending the plant, the flowers are the finale of your work!

Your patience pays off with Impatiens! :) At least, that's what "busy lizzy" looks like to I correct? (I like the name busy lizzy better).

Hi Lisa,Impatiens is the botanical name. I needed patience too to make them flower!I like Busy Lizzy better too for the name :)
