An AAS Winner! (Hybrid) Florific Sweet Orange New Guinea Impatiens is a perfect choice for brightening gardens or patio containers in partial to full shade. Plants produce masses of large 2 inch, uniquely bicolored flowers in shades of light salmon to deep orange set against bronze foliage. Naturally branching plants 10 to 15 inches tall and wide quickly fill beds and are perfect for planting en masse. With resistance to impatiens downy mildew, Florific Sweet Orange is the perfect alternative for shade gardens where the disease is a concern. Unlike traditional impatiens, it will not succumb to Impatiens Downy Mildew and will, instead, provide reliable, bright color in the garden all season long. New Guinea impatiens should not be set out in the garden until night temperatures are above 45 F. Plants should be set approximately 12" apart in garden beds to avoid crowding and to give the best ground coverage. Allow 12 to 14 weeks from sowing to bloom.
