Product Information

A plant with instant appeal and not often available to buy, treat your garden to something a little more out-of-the-ordinary and grow the exotic-looking Parrot plant (Impatiens niamniamensis).

Also known as Congo cockatoo and parrot impatiens you'll see why straight away - the waxy blooms of yellow and crimson resemble tiny red and yellow birds perching on slender stems!

A tropical relative of the ordinary garden impatiens, it's very similar in its likes and dislikes. Fascinating for children and adults alike, it's easy to grow and propagates easily, just like a normal busy Lizzie.

Grown as a flamboyant pot plant in the greenhouse or conservatory where it can reach over 4ft, the parrot plant will also perform in the garden or on the patio. Just give it a position in partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil and it'll happily produce its little parrot-shaped flowers all summer.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot.
