Annual for partial shade. Blooms all summer long in filtered light and semi-shade. Upright low growing plants produce exceptional flowers backed by delicate pointed leaves. This dwarf variety produces double camellia like blooms in a very wide range of bright colors. Non-genetically engineered seeds.
Culture: Can be started indoors February-April. Transplant after all danger of frost has passed. Outdoors, sow the seed thinly in light, well-drained, very humus-y rich soil. Pinch young plants to promote dense growth. Plants must be kept moist. Bait to prevent damage from snails and slugs. Tip: The ability to flower generously in shade, rare among flowers, has made impatiens a star annual from coast to coast.
