SunPatiens are a sun loving version of the beloved garden Impatiens that has become devastated by Downy Mildew. Since this growing problem with Downy mildew on regular garden Impatiens, Shade loving New Guinea Impatiens and Sun loving SunPatiens, which are resistant to Downyy Mildew, have exploded into the landscape.


In warmer climates, establish SunPatiens into your flower beds in spring to have their root systems ready for the water demands that summer brings. When planting put 2 inches of pine bark mini nuggets or pine mulch around the plants to hold in moisture to keep from always having to watering them. Water regularly for the first month, until established and then just when needed.
