Plant Families / Impatiens
Mainstays in borders, containers, window-boxes or hanging baskets, Impatiens are annuals or tender perennials noted for their profuse flowers and incredible range of colors. Blooming continuously from late spring to fall, most thrive in part shade or full shade although the New Guinea impatiens tolerate more sun. Heat tolerant, easy to grow, they bloom better than just about anything else in shady conditions, stay compact, and have attractive foliage. Whatever the requirement, there is an impatiens to fill the need!
