Easy to Plant. Exceptional Performance.

Garden success has never been simpler with easy-to-plant, easy-to-grow SunPatiens. The thicker petals and tough foliage of these impatiens mean they are less prone to disease, and their strong sturdy stems tolerate high heat and humidity, rain and adverse weather conditions.

  • Easy to grow
  • Thrives under heat, humidity, rain or shine
  • Blooms nonstop
  • Downy mildew resistant!

SunPatiens® are the first impatiens that actually thrive in full sun to part shade. They grow fast and fill in quickly thanks to their strong, durable root system. Many landscapers, home owners, growers and gardeners love the unstoppable flower power of SunPatiens. Follow these simple guidelines for optimal performance:

  1. Select a site with well-drained soil. Heavy, clay-based soils that retain excess moisture may limit aeration of the roots; amend this problem by adding organic matter to the soil. Bedding Plants are sensitive to soil compaction from heavy foot traffic so avoid stepping in the flower beds after transplanting.
  2. SunPatiens do well in various light exposures, from full sun to partial shade. SunPatiens may be planted under trees with high canopies or on the side of homes where they receive a few hours of direct morning sunshine. Variegated leaf types are great options for heavy shade locations due to the attractive foliage.
  3. During the first few weeks following transplanting it is important to water more frequently until the roots are well established. Until then, plants only have access to moisture in the initial soil ball and may be subject to wilting. SunPatiens will rebound quickly from wilt, however, with the addition of water. To avoid plant damage (leaf and flower burn), water early or late in the day when the plants are not under heat stress.
  4. A light mulch is beneficial in reducing watering frequency, but avoid mounding it up too close to the base of the plants as this could cause stem rot.
