The flower measures about 6cm long and is a bright fuschia pink, and it grows like a weed in the rainy season (Jan-May) - in fact some think it is a weed.


Amongst rocks, side of the road and it appears happy everywhere


Some have suggested a busy lizzie but I don't think so. I imagine it must be a flower that was introduced years ago by the British ... or maybe not! Please help :)

Welcome to Noah Zomba! Nice to see you join. This does look familiar. I'm not sure if its Impatiens or not but I think a friend at work will know.
