This attractive but vigorous ground cover is ideal for difficult, shady sites, especially cut-outs in terraces and along sidewalks.. Impatiens omeiana spreads by underground stolons and, when it is happy, it can cloak a neglected area with its beautiful foliage. The narrow eliptical leaves are arranged in whorls. They have a ghostly white central streak down their dark green lengths and are often blushed red along their toothed edges. Curious late flowers are an added attraction. This was found by Don Jacobs on Mount Emei in Sichuan Prefecture, China.
