Description:

Huge, bright orange flowers 5 cm (2") wide cover the bright green foliage of these bushy plants all summer long. Uniform shaped plants grow to 60 cm (2') in height and spread to 45 cm (18") wide. These plants seem to thrive in the hottest of weather. While New Guinea Impatiens can withstand a lot of sun and heat, we suggest that for best growth, avoid placing plants where they will be exposed to direct sunlight during the middle of the day. We also suggest trimming back plants in mid season to encourage bushy growth.

How To Grow 600 seeds/gram. Start indoors in a soil-less mix 8-10 weeks early. Sow on the surface of the growing medium and keep at 24-26 C (75-78 F) for the 10-21 day germination period. Grow-on under lights at a cooler temperature range of 15-18 C (60-65 F). When plants are 5 cm (2") tall, transplant to individual 10 cm (4") pots. Hardening-off before transplanting outdoors is essential. Plant outside in a semi-shady site after the danger of frost has passed. Space plants 25 cm (10") apart in the garden.
