11 Sep I Love Variegated New Guinea Impatiens
Name: Variegated forms of Impatiens hawkeri aka New Guinea Impatiens
Type of Plant: Low-maintenance annual that grows to about 12 inches tall.
Why I Love/Hate this plant: I’m loving the variegated form of this very useful annual because you get green and yellow foliage and the colorful flowers. This is a bright plant for places where you want color, color and color all summer.
A Word to the Wise: Plant these in groups of 5 or more. They are so brilliant that if planted in smaller groups they will become “dots” in the garden that draw attention without adding drama. More is more with this brilliant plant.
