Plant Common Name

Busy Lizzy, Double Up™ Red Impatiens, Impatiens

General Description

The pretty double red flowers of this vigorous impatiens will add flare to any shaded bed or container.

Impatiens are shade-loving bedding plants that everyone knows and loves. Surprisingly, these common “annuals” are actually shrubby tender perennials in their native East Africa and will survive winters in tropical and sub-tropical zones. Double Up™ Red produces many doubled red flowers all season long.

Impatiens prefer locations with partial sun to shade and moist, humus rich soil with good drainage. If given these conditions, they are easy to grow and make outstanding additions to shaded gardens, containers and hanging baskets.
