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.
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. :-)
Wow, lovely looking plant! Must investigate how to get one, thanks for showing us!
This plant is from the genus Impatiens.
Common Name: African Queen
Latin Name: Niamniamensis.
Also commonly named: Congo Cockatoo; Parrot Plant.
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. :-)
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
Thanks Chris, I shall now investigate it is so pretty. Sandra.
What a gorgeous plant, and what a lovely gift for you. Enjoy it!
Thanks so much for commenting 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
Wow, spectacular wonder of nature...
It looks just a Parrot's beak, doesn't it. I've never seen one before.
