Impatiens flanaganae

I've grown this plant in Los Angeles for several years and it seems happy
enough. Depending on when it gets going and on spring weather, it can bloom
in early summer and then take a flowering breakn during peak heat until
cooler early fall weather, then blooms again. Seems to enjoy daytime heat
(with plenty of shade and water) but the key I suspect is cooler night
temps, i.e., below 70-75F. It is totally leafless in winter dormancy here
and kept outdoors (lows 30s to 40s) dry or with a little moisture. The
tubers seem to like being planted shallow and even exposed a little.
