New Guinea Impatiens
The crowning glory of the remarkable New Guinea impatiens is their balance between rich, luscious foliage and abundant, lively blooms. These wonderful plants offer compact and uniform colour with great branching, and if kept free from frost will last for several years. They prefer a sheltered and partly shaded position, but will tolerate both full sun and shade.
The vibrant colours of New Guinea impatiens look wonderful either mixed and matched, or grown in a mass display of single colours. Planted outside in clumps, they establish quickly to provide early season colour. There is a huge range of colours to choose from – more than 20 different shades.
The New Guinea hybrids are proving resistant to the strain of downy mildew that is affecting the bedding impatiens.
