Impatien maculata

The highly endangered Impatiens of the Western Ghats, comprise around eighty species. This is the first of the series I am painting. These Impatiens are found along stream sides and road cuts aroung Munnar, Kerala , South India and prefer cool climes with atleast 90 inches of rainfall. The blooming is only around the time of the South West monsoon.Interested buyers and commissions are accepted for endangered plants ranging from orchids, ferns to impatiens.
