On the other hand, when I bought the Impatiens walleriana, there were already lots of unopened floral buds. And it has been flowering non-stop since then.
The orange tubular flowers of the Hamelia patens is so strange and is somewhat an anti-climax. It lacks the large showy petals that would otherwise make it a very attractive shrub, and at best I can only describe the flowers and small reddish fruits as interesting. Right after taking the photos, I pruned off these 2 branches, so that there is enough light for the other plants hidden under it.
The Symphyotrichum laeve (synonym: Aster laevis; common name: Smooth Blue Aster, Glaucous Aster; Family: Asteraceae) is also starting to flower after some months. Links on this shrub are attached here:
