New Guinea Impatiens are upright, warm weather annuals and tender perennials. These seasonal favorites offer a full spectrum of vibrant colors on bold blossoms and rich lance-shaped leaves. Impatiens are shade tolerant with a well-branching nature and compact growth habit. These beautiful plants offer large, round, vibrant flowers, appearing early in the season and forming a canopy of color which continues in warm weather conditions. The lush green or red foliage grows to form upright, rounded mounds covered by five-pedaled, flattened flowers. This suite of tropical perennials was collected from the island of Papa New Guinea, which is northeast of Australia and thrives in similar warm climates, seasonal or geographical.
