Impatiens Hawkerii 'Sunpatiens'

 

Impatiens

Impatiens is a beautiful annual that provides colourful flowers to enliven beds, borders, window boxes and tubs throughout summer and into early autumn. Impatiens like shade and moisture. If wilted, they quickly recover back into shape after watering. Unlike traditional New Guinea impatiens which need protection from full sun, this series, 'Sunpatiens' were developed to thrive in full sun. They also thrive in hot and humid summer climates. Full shade should be avoided.
