Talk on Impatiens

MrImpatiens(Zone 9 CA)March 12, 2004

Hi everyone

To let you all know Annie's Annuals will be having their open house April 3. I will be giving a talk on Impatiens at 11:00 am. I will be talking mostly on species but can you folks give me some ideas or suggestions you would like to hear about? Also what companion plants do you think make good partners with Impatiens? Personally I prefer plants that will allow Impatiens flowers to really stand out like ferns or large leafy plants.

Mr.Impatiens I wish I was in USA so I could come.
About suggestions for companion,I think Alyssum grown in the front of a boarder,with impatiens behind it,would look fantasic.Particulary white, that way it doesn't take away from the impatiens,but compliments it. And it stays low.

I grow my impatiens with hosta,ferns,caladiums and hypoestes. I like a color scheme of pink,white and green and it always turns out lovely.
