SunPatiens are a great choice for growing in full sun or shade! They were bred by the Japanese seed company, Sakata. They are a hybrid impatien bred from the combination of wild “traditional” impatiens and larger heat-loving Impatiens hawkeri, native to New Guinea. This new cross between these two different plant breeds was created to have improved traits. With an emphasis on heat tolerance for warmer regions where summers can get hot!

Heat and humidity won’t stop SunPatien flowers from blooming its head off in your garden. Grow SunPatien colors in a sunny, partly shaded, or shaded spot with rich, well-drained soil.

Sunpatiens Compact Tropical Rose

Growing sunpatiens plant is very easy and low maintenance. They do require a lot of water and an automatic irrigation system is nice to have. But will tolerate drying out and bounce back quick after watering. Fertilize at least once every two weeks. Too much fertilizer can make the plants grow too fast, become floppy and not stand up without support. It will also reduce blooming and the foliage will begin to grow in a crinkly form. They will continue to bloom until a heavy frost takes them out.
