This superior busy lizzie with light blush-pink flowers is taking the plant world by storm. SunPatiens are stronger and far more robust than standard impatiens. SunPatiens Compact Blush Pink is compact/mounding variety that is a lot more neat and tidy (unlike the vigorous varieties). Growing to heights of 25-60cm, this SunPatien will give you a more rounded tidy display.

As their name suggests, SunPatiens also have superb weather tolerance with the ability to withstand wind, rain, humidity, scorching heat and cool shade. Sunpatiens are also tolerant to downy mildew on Impatiens. Use one Sunpatien instead of three standard busy lizzie plants to get the same fabulous display. Superb weather tolerance – flourishes in all conditions. Our large plug plants will be very quick to establish. Read our SunPatiens Growing Guide here

Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

SunPatiens® Planting & Care Tips

SunPatiens® can't be beaten for easy care and non-stop colour. Aside from regular watering, SunPatiens are virtually maintenance free. Plant them, step back and you will be delighted with the results!
 
Baskets & Containers

  •  Plant in well-drained potting soil if you are re-potting into larger containers or baskets
  •  Incorporate a slow release fertilizer into the potting media if the soil you are using does not already contain fertilizer
  •  If potting soil does not contain fertilizer, apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month
  •  Place containers or baskets in full sun or shade
  •  Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established (7-10 days)
  • If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours
  •  New leaves and new flowers will cover the old blooms so you don't need to remove old flowers or cut off older growth
  •  In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form

In the Garden

  • Plant in well-drained soil, rich in organic matter such as compost
  • Incorporate a slow release fertilizer at label rates into the soil when you plant
  • An alternative way to fertilize is to apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month
  • Plant in full sun or shade
  • Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established, which should be in 7-10 days
  • If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours
  • In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form but if Vigorous types get taller than desired in mid- to late summer, they can be cut back, taking off the top 1/3 of growth

General Growing Advice

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 13cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks.  Water once the compost starts to dry out.

If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food  to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.

Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.

Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.

***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Very strong little plants.
Thursday, 20 May 2021  | 

Absolutely delighted they are now "growing on" in karger pots and just awaiting some sunshine and warmth and we know they'll be lovely. We've just returned to the UK after many years living in France and have grown them there each year. They're a winner.

The plants arrived well packaged & still damp. I was surprised how big the plugs are, & now they are potted in the greenhouse, they are growing really well. I haven't tried these before, but they look really promising.
