Impatiens Walleriana, commonly called impatiens or buzzy Lizzy, is the
most popular annual bedding plant in the U.S. today. For easy-to-grow,
non-stop flowering in shady conditions, it has no equal. It is a bushy,
succulent-stemmed tender perennial that grows in a spreading mound
to 6-24” tall depending on variety. Single flowers have a distinctively
flattened appearance. Ovate to elliptic leaves (to 3” long) are light green
to dark green, sometimes with a bronze-red cast.
They look spectacular when massed in shady beds and borders or used
as an edging plant along paths and walkways, and grown in containers,
hanging baskets, and window boxes.
Plant in fertile, well-draining soil enriched with organic matter in light
to medium shade, keeping them out of direct sunlight. Set out transplants
in early spring or sow seed indoors 8 to 10 weeks before your last frost
date. They are very sensitive to cold temperatures, so be sure the threat
of frost has passed, and the soil has warmed up before putting them in
Impatiens are not drought tolerant, so they need to be watered regularly
during dry spells to keep the soil consistently moist and prevent the
plants from wilting. If planted in pots, they may need to be watered
daily during hot, dry weather.
