These plants have full double (rosebud-type) flowers on plants bred to grow full and compact. They hold their blooms up on top of the foliage (not under a leaf.) Our select series are proven varieties with superior genetics for horticulture use. Double Impatiens are also available in URC (unrooted cuttings).
Grow in medium light and well-drained soil. Keep the pH of the soil between 5.5 and 6.5. To grow the best plant never feed at more than 150 ppm nitrogen. Florel at young stage of plants perhaps 2 weeks after planting is good to promote lateral branching. Florel may defoliate older plants so be careful. Watch for spider mites and thrips. These plants are susceptible to fungi and viral diseases.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
