Sunpatiens

Sunpatiens are 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 impatiens from blooming its head off in your garden. Grow SunPatien impatiens varieties in a sunny, partly shaded, or shaded spot with rich, well-drained soil.

Growing sunpatiens 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 will not stand up, will reduce blooms and they foliage will begin to grow in a crinkly form. They will continue to bloom until a heavy frost takes them out.

Do SunPatiens come back every year?

Sunpatiens are grown as an annual and need to be replanted each year.

Do SunPatiens take full sun or shade?

Sunpatiens love and thrive in full sun. They will require more water but will perform well. In shade, they will not bloom as much as they would in full sun. They will still outperform other shade annuals.
