Double Impatiens

dr.sauvageJune 29, 2013

We have a double impatiens that has died. It started to droop one day and then slowly started to die on one side then moved across the plant. We bought it at Lowes a few weeks ago but doesn't seem to be doing well. We water it once a day or depending on how hot it gets in the day. It is also in full shade all day.

We are going to take it back to Lowes to replace it and see if they can give us an answer on why it died. We are worried that if we get a new one that the same thing will happen. Can any one gives us an answer?

Probably Downey Mildew. Major problem throughout US. Almost wiped out impatiens crop. Huge losses. Impatiens were #1 selling annual in US.

You may not want to plant anything else in that spot next year.
