The balsamina can produce blooms of rose, scarlet, violet, salmon and white to bring unusual color and variety to a flower garden. The balsamina needs some shade from the sun, and it can be used in flowerbeds that get only partial sun and as border flowers in spots that have some protection from the sun.
