OK gals and guys can someone help me throughout the wide work of Cuties. I received this gorgeous plant from a friend at church this morning - no one knows what it is. So just now I dropped into Sharpes nursery and the owner didn't know what is either. So any suggestions really appreciated, love ❤️ Chris

What a fabulous plant. I will have to see where I can get one as they should do very well down here on the NSW Sth Coast.
Enjoy your wonderful gift.
Cheers Lynne

Sidewise does my head in at times and this is one of them. After scrolling down - did a head slap - of course!! Those are typical Impatiens leaves. Just a very different flower.
Chris, Impatiens love shade for at least half the day and water.
I have grown other impatiens all over from Toowoomba Qld to central Victoria.
Dah! that is the same climate zone. :-)

Awesome looking plant. I wonder if it's available at nursery's down here in Sydney

First thing I thought of was a parrot and was going to Google it.....
Then I thought, I'll just scroll down first and see if anyone has already identified it. :-)
Love it!

A lovely & unusual plant .You should have no trouble growing it,if it is like ordinary impatiens which spring up everywhere in the garden.

Hi Judy, I'm sure you are correct love ❤️ Chris

Chris, it is simply stunning, do you know where your friend got it from ? I would be interested to know, if we can one at our local nursery. Wonder does it grow from a cutting? Sandra.

Hi Sandra, my friend had it in her garden and she just breaks off pieces and puts them into a glass bottle or something to take root. I'm sur down in Sydney you should be able to find some especially now we know what they are called. Love ❤️ Chris

It is a Parrot Impatiens
Funny thing. I had no clue, but after reading Toogies comment I decided to google images of parrot plant. Try that and you will come up with many pictures of it.

Thanks darling I knew someone could find out what it is. Cuties to the rescue once again love ❤️ Chris

It looks just a Parrot's beak, doesn't it. I've never seen one before.

by toogie 06 Nov 2016
