Perfect for growing under trees in the partial shade landscape, Impatiens flowers give and give all summer long. This Accent Impatiens Star mix has wonderful shades of red with a white central star. These Impatiens are perfect for the front of the flower border and are compact and low-growing, reaching 8 - 10 inches in height and typically having a spread of 15 - 18 inches. When grown in containers, Impatiens care includes checking the soil daily for adequate moisture. Impatiens do best with moist soil, but soggy soil will possibly lead to fungal disease, so only water when needed.
Growing Impatiens From Flower Seeds: Sow Impatiens seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use starter trays and good starter soil that has been pre-moistened with warm water. Sow flower seeds into the cells, press into soil but do not cover. Cover the trays loosely with plastic wrap to keep the moisture and heat in. Remove the wrap to mist the Impatiens seeds regularly. Place the trays in a warm place that is bright, but avoid direct sunlight. Once germination has occurred, remove the plastic wrap and grow on in a bright, south facing window. Harden the plants off for 10 - 14 days and transplant Impatiens seedlings into containers or the garden 8 - 12 inches apart after all danger of frost has passed.
