Gardeners love impatiens because they are one of the few plants that offer stand-out, splashy blooms for shady areas. These beautiful annuals bloom from spring to summer and continue to be a popular filler for containers and the landscape. New impatiens cultivars thrive in the shade, and in some cases full sun and part shade, and offer earlier flowering for an instant infusion of color. Mega-sized blooms come in a full range of colors and stand out against dark, light, and variegated foliage. There’s no shortage of new introductions this year for your 2018 product mix. Here are 27 new and improved varieties that we saw at California Spring Trials 2017 to consider offering to your customers.
