Gardeners' Notes:

Positive PinetopPlanter On Aug 22, 2009, PinetopPlanter from Auburn Four Corners, PA (Zone 5a) wrote:

This is by far the best double impatiens I've ever seen or grown. The flowers are perfect "roses," large and symmetrically double, and the plants are lush and self-cleaning. They are performing beautifully in windowboxes on a deck in a wooded area which receives half day sun. I would grow them again in a heartbeat.

Positive gardenwife On Aug 16, 2004, gardenwife from Newark, OH (Zone 5b) wrote:

This impatiens is a stellar performer. It gives all the beauty of a rose bloom with none of the fuss. They root very easily from cuttings and provide season-long color. They're self-cleaning and don't require deadheading, though pinching them back will make them stockier, fuller plants.
