The delicate blooms of the SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens are a lovely soft lavender hue that stands out against the dark green leaves. This cultivar has the same striking good looks and easy-care maintenance as traditional Impatiens, but this variety can handle increased light levels, allowing you to enjoy this plant in areas typically unsuitable for Impatiens. This plant is a continuous bloomer that will push out flowers from planting until frost.
This annual is a mounded plant that can fill in a container for lush combination planting. Use the SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens in a landscape or mass planting to dress up a bed in need of vibrant color. The flowers have a tropical look that handles the summer heat with ease.
SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens Care
Plant the SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens in partial to full sunlight. This annual requires 4 to 6 hours of sunlight to thrive. Feel the soil and water when the top couple of inches start to dry out. Impatiens like damp conditions, and while this variety can dry out a bit more than other types, try to maintain consistent dampness for best results. Soil should be rich, well-draining, and slightly acidic to support growth. Feed the plant using a balanced fertilizer every couple of weeks during the growing season.
Impatiens can live outdoors in very warm areas all year, but these beauties are grown as annuals in most areas. With proper care, these plants can overwinter inside. Impatiens grown as houseplants need water when the top few inches of soil feel dry and require bright light.
SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens Spacing
The SunPatiens® Compact Orchid Blush Impatiens will grow 16 to 30 inches tall and 14 to 20 inches wide. When used in a landscape with other plants, Impatiens can be spaced as close as 8 to 12 inches from nearby plants. If featuring this plant in a container, a 10- to 12-inch pot can support 3 to 4 Impatiens.
