New Guinea Impatiens (10 of 21)

New Guinea Impatiens are more elegant than the regular garden-variety impatiens - they tolerate a bit more sun.
The 'Super Sonic' variety produce large blooms - up to three inches across - and grow from 12 to 20 inches in height. We used the Super Salmon Ice, a deep, rich salmon, and Super Sonic White and Red.
Hardy in USDA zones 2-11:
Zones 2-9: Plant outside or in containers after danger of frost has passed; plant in light to partial shade; water freely during growing season; pinch to increase bushiness; fertilize monthly while outdoors; discard plants after frost; will sometimes reseed.
Zones 9-11: Plant in spring; plant in light to partial shade; water freely during growing season; pinch to increase bushiness; fertilize monthly while outdoors; will sometimes reseed.
