Balsam ‘Camellia Flowered Mix’ is an old-fashioned plant that has been grown in American gardens for over a century. It is a branching annual and grows 18 to 30 inches tall. Balsam has double flowers that are mostly axillary, in rose, salmon, white, scarlet and violet. It grows in full to part sun, with moderate to moist conditions in rich and well-drained soils. It is effectively used in beds and borders as well as containers. Attracts bumble bees.

Sowing: Direct sow in spring, pressing the seed lightly into the surface of the soil; water carefully to avoid disturbing the seed, and keep consistently moist until germination, which should occur within 7-10 days. To start Impatiens Balsamina seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before frost, sow the seed on the surface of the soil in a flat; keep it lightly moist until germination. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost or when they can safely be handled. Growing: This plant tolerates some drought, but produces the best blossoms in consistently moist, rich soil. It also adapts well to clay soil. Pinch back the stems of young plants to encourage bushiness and branching growth. Plants grown from seed outdoors will bloom in mid to late summer, while plants started indoors may bloom in early summer; they will bloom until frost. Deadhead for the most blooms. This plant will self-sow readily. It makes a good choice for containers or as a border plant, and attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
