More Information About Impatiens
Growing impatiens as hardy perennials may seem a bit counterintuitive, but in reality many impatiens species are perennial wildflowers and surprisingly winter-hardy. We have found some impatiens that love summer heat, while others would rather reside in the cool Pacific Northwest. None of the impatiens species we offer can hold a candle to the annual impatiens hybrids for sheer flower power, but they are uniquely attractive and offer a delightful new twist for the woodland perennial garden.
Perennial impatiens like garden conditions similar to the ubiquitous annual impatiens: part shade and consistent moisture. Some perennial impatiens spread via underground rhizomes while others are clumpers.
