How much sun for Super Elfin Sunrise/WildThing

molokaigardenerAugust 9, 2006

Hi, I purchased and was finally able to germinate some Super Elfin Sunrise Impatiens. I think Burpee calls them Wild Thing. And I bought them because they are supposed to take full sun. Well, I guess they didn't mean Hawaiian full sun because while they are blooming beautifully, after a day or so, the blooms get white blotches on them and look kind of mottled. The only shadey spot I have is under an avocado tree. But that's really shady. Is that too much of the other extreme. I have one more place that is shaded at leat until around 1:00 but then it's going to get sun. Does anyone else grow these and can you tell me how much sun you give them? Thanks.

They really are not much different from regular bedding Impatiens. The shady spot should be just fine just watch out for falling avocados.

my new zone is 7 in southern Oregon. I don't understand why the gardenweb site will not accept my saved changes. Oh well.
Do you still have any seeds from Super Elfin Sunrise aka Wild Thing impatien.
