About Impatiens

Impatiens are annuals or evergreen perennials, with gorgeous serrated foliage, lime-green, slender stems and either solitary or clustered 5-petalled flowers. Impatiens are best suited to flower beds or borders within a cottage or informal garden setting. You should expect to see Impatiens grow to an approximate height of 1 1.5m (3-5) and a spread of 50-100cm (1.6-3).

How to plant Impatiens

Impatiens are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of chalk, clay loam or sand within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball. Space companion plants 40cm (16) apart and mixing a generous amount of peat moss to the planting area, mixing thoroughly to keep the ground moist. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place. Impatiens are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade.

How to care for Impatiens

Impatiens are low maintenance plants requiring little care throughout growth and maturity. Water Impatiens regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not too wet. If the plants dry out, they will lose their leaves. If you over-water the plants, this could encourage fungal diseases. Container grown plants will need more water.

How to propagate Impatiens

It is possible to propagate Impatiens by seed or by softwood cuttings.
