Impatiens New Guinea – Infinity Red

Infinity Red

Description

We are proud to be a Gold Key Grower for the Proven Winners’ brand of plants.  The 4-1/2″ branded pots come 8 to a tray.

New Guinea Impatiens need a lot of water and it is sometimes difficult to maintain the appropriate moisture levels during the heat of the summer.  They generally bounce back after a few hours if they are left to dry out to where they are severely wilted.

Growing Conditions:  Infinity do well in the ground or in containers.  They will do best in shady areas but have been shown to do fine in hot sun as long as they are well watered.  If you want to trim them to improve habit, use a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears.  A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will ensure the best possible performance.
