HI I have a query: An email chain that is doing the rounds is of an impatiens flower resembling a parrot. Browsing gave me info that it is Impatiens psittacina described by HOoker. Is this plant present In India?


Pl. see efi site link:
/species/a—l/b/balsaminaceae/impatiens/impatiens-psittacina


I have seen all these links too. BUt I wanted to know if the plant is present somewhere in INdia


The following efloraofindia link at efi site gives this answer:

Claims that it grows in India and Vietnam have proven to be false” end quote ….
