262Balsam, ChineseDirect seed in midspring. Probably one of the easiest germinators worldwide. Fast-growing, quick to flower. Space plants 1 foot apart. Grows 2 to 3 feet.70full sunmoistrich50 eachNative to China. The fleshy stems bear masses of highly decorative pink, purple, and lavender flowers that remain comely throughout the summer. The entire plant is loaded with healing mucilage. Because the seed of Chinese Balsam retains its germinability much more reliably than its American cousin Jewelweed (e.g. Impatiens capensis), we really recommend growing this plant for the same spontaneous anti-itch poulticing that has made Jewelweed so famous. Got poison ivy on your leg? Rub on the fresh juice of Impatiens -- it is astringent, anti-itch, and healing. And, you know in your heart, the fastest way to make it go away is to STOP ITCHING IT! Plant prefers full sun, rich soil, water.Antipruritic, Astringent, Stings
