Can you tell me the name of this plant? The Italian lady who gave it to me told me that "in the old country," they would tie it to the rafters in the house to keep mice from running there.

It's my thong.

I have grown Impatients in Sacramento and other locals long enough to have earned the nick name "The Impatient Lady". This year, May 1, 2012 I began my planting process of approx 20 + flats of Impatients. They are all dead. Through investigation, I found and article in the NY Times re downy/powdery mildew, wiping out crops of Impatients. Started on East coast. I checked w/nursery. They assured me the blight had not arrived in CA. Wrong. Through an article written by UC Riverside extension, it was first discovered in CA in 2012. Why has the garden detective not addressed this in their column? I could go on and on but suspect you will do your own research.
