I pulled up my NG Impatients yesterday as the cooler weather has decreased blooms and frost is expected this week. The undersides of the leaves were a beautiful purple--a bit of beauty at the end of the season.

Same here, Rose, just tired of watering and pruning spent flowers. Maybe I like the 4 seasons after all.

Yes, the foliage is lovely. My NG's are still going strong, one of my favorite annuals, no doubt. I have been growing them from seed; they are pokey in the house under the lights, but once planted they really take off and turn into lush blooming machines :0)
