We plant SunPatiens around our farm store every
year. They look fantastic all season, there's no
maintenance, they look great even after a summer
thuderstorm, definitely a must grow flower for
They're the flower we've been waiting years for: a
true sunshine impatiens. SunPatiens® are the first
impatiens to thrive in full hot sun, all summer
long. Their ability withstand the heat of summer
is truly extraordinary, and amazingly they also
are happy in shade, -even indoors! Introduced in
are quickly becoming a garden standard.
SunPatiens® are easy to grow, and will thrive
until frost. Although known for their sun
tolerance, they are just as happy in shade.
SunPatiens are not susceptible to downy
mildew, so they make an excellent alternative
to regular shade impatiens. Much
larger than standard shade impatiens, SunPatiens®
do best in the ground, or in very
large containers. The vibrant colours of the
flowers are highlighted by the dark foliage.
SunPatiens® are sun tolerant, but they're NOT
drought tolerant, so make sure they get
lots of water.
