My impatiens are still showing off though and I think they usually last until the very first hint of frost.
So, while some of my plants are crapping out, this one is surely not.
A friend of mine who lives on Maui remarked about the difference having the 4 seasons makes. I had not really thought about the idea that in climates where it never freezes, that annuals become perennials to a point. It's amazing to my little mind, the diversity of climates on this little earth.
