I had this plant for over a year. But when we had freezing weather it froze and died. I suppose if I could have put it inside for the winter it would have kept on living.

New Guinea impatiens are a winter plant in this area, and to the south. They need cool nights to thrive. This is a marginal plant, in the garden, in zone USDA 9A (or heat zone 10).
