Impatiens

Annual

Are you getting impatient for the impatiens?

The plants with the eye popping color all season long will be here before you know it.”Busy Lizzy” is a common name for the plant. The origin of which presumably lies in how “busy” this prolific bloomer is at producing blossoms.

Plant type: annual in North America. They are native to tropical Africa and easily damaged by frost.

Characteristics: Typically short plants, not taller than a foot. Impatiens come in a variety of colors, including red, white, pink, violet, coral and purple. A yellow cultivar has recently been developed. Do not be afraid to trim off the top 1/3 of the plant when it becomes leggy in the summer. This will promote new flowers and the over all plant will look better. Impatiens have many garden uses ranging from a mass planting in shady beds, to hanging baskets, window boxes, and container gardens. Impatiens also brighten up a woodland garden path.

The number ONE cause of DEATH is OVERWATERING!!!! If you are wanting these beautiful specimen plants for a sunny location be watching for the “Sun Patiens”.
