Overview & Benefits
Available Varieties: Fire, Purple Star, White
New Guinea impatiens flower earlier than other varieties, with their bright, round flowers showing up mid-spring, giving you color you can enjoy until early fall. These sturdy plants tolerate part shade to full sun. Both easy to grow and low-maintenance, New Guinea impatiens bring bursts of color to shady spots in your yard, make lovely borders, and provide beautiful filler in planters.
