Double Impatien buds falling off

floralia(Oregon High Desert)August 10, 2005

Help! I'm new to these forums, but I see that there is a wealth of knowledge out there.

I have two double Imps that are very large and in 8" clay pots. They are in a semi/mostly shady area. They are both literally covered with buds, however, the buds FALL OFF before they open! What can I do?

I had the same problem with mine which I tried for the first time this year. I think I read somewhere that they tend to do that. I've decided eventhough they are pretty, it's hard to improve on regular impatients. No more doubles for me.
