A fragrant & colorful mix of double blossoms grace these tender annual heirlooms in summer and fall. The rose, pink, white or bi-colored blooms resemble camellia flowers. The plant is valued for the mucilage it contains which is used like Jewelweed as an anti-itch remedy for poison oak & poison ivy. Balsam has traditional uses in Chinese medicine and in parts of Asia, it is used like henna for decoration.
