Name: Impatiens Spreading SunPatiens Variegated Salmon
Type of Plant: Annual SunPatiens are similar to New Guinea impatiens in that they will tolerate full sun or part shade. These impatiens are not effected by downy mildew, and this variety grows wider than it is tall.
Why I Love This: I love the fact that you get several colors with this plant. The flowers are a couple of shades of salmon as they age, and the foliage is variegated yellow and green. So this is a plant with lots of pow!
The spreading, variegated Sunpatiens grows 18 to 24” high and 24 to 36” wide…a good sized plant!
A Word to the Wise: Don’t plant any impatiens, including SunPatiens, in full shade. Make sure these plants get at least a couple of hours of direct sun for good flowering. Be sure to scatter some time-release or organic fertilizer (or a mix of the two) onto the soil surface in the area before you plant so that these annuals are stimulated to grow and flower all summer.
