    Cannabis indica (sometimes classified Cannabis sativa indica) is an annual plant in the Cannabaceae family. A putative species of the genus Cannabis, it is typically distinguished from Cannabis sativa.[1][2] Schultes described C. indica as relatively short, conical, and densely branched, whereas C. sativa was described as tall and laxly branched.[3] Anderson described indica plants as having short, broad leaflets whereas those of the sativa species were characterized as relatively long and narrow.[4] Cannabis indica plants conforming to Schultes's and Anderson's descriptions may have originated from the Hindu Kush mountain range. Because of the often harsh and variable (extremely cold winters, and warm summers) climate of those parts, C. indica is well-suited for cultivation in temperate climates having lovely whiteish to a light purple hue in color flowers.

    You do realize it was a joke? I have no idea what the flowers are.

    This bush is called "yesterday, today, and tomorrow".

    One thing to note when talking about native species is that Cannabis Sativa is the tropical variety and Cannabis Indica would be of the higher lattitudes or places with definite seasons. Cannabis Sativa grows in long stringy plants with airy flowers to avoid mold. Cannabis Indica are larger and denser flowers that would likely mold in a high humidity climate. The effects of the plants are very different. The indica being a sleepy version and the sativa being more of a speedier thing. What is being produced globally now are strains that are hybrids of the two extremes to capitalize on the benefits of each.

    Catahoula Fan's got it: "Yesterday, today, and tomorrow" or YTT, either of which is better sounding than its botanical name of Brunfelsia

    I would have picked that too.. But hey .. I just replaced glass, fixed furnaces, planted what I was told, Watered what I was told and drove truck for the 20 yrs at the greenhouse (oh yea and sprayed chemicals too... That was a cool space suit)

    My Dad actually met the man who cultivated the impatients that now grown in almost all of the US and Canada. At the time (late 90's) the fellow was in his Ninty's and living in Costa Rica, where he had taken his first cuttings.

    While at the (Belated, as we were away) family Christmas dinner Saturday, my Sister and Dad were talking about a specific fungus that targets Impatients and is moving from the midwest to the Eastern US, Manitoba and Ontario ... They are worried as impatients are 20% of their spring bedding plant sales.

    Also my Dad was telling that the Horticulture giant Ball is pulling up some of its Costa Rica operations and moving it to Nicaragua... Mostly cuttings.. Found the following new release.. Appears they are setting up in Esteli..

    Ball Horticulture..

    My Dad has dealt with Ball since he first started in 1969...

    The bloom and the leaf shape surely suggested to me that it was impatients, however; with those on the ground to call the plant and further review of that online information, I would have to admit being incorrect on my identification of the plant.
