Annual flowers are a wonderful addition to your garden. They bring a lot of color and interest. According to the USDA, gardening and lawn care ring up about $47.8 billion in spending in the United States. Following these tips for planting and caring for disease-resistant impatiens will protect your garden investment.
Impatiens are popular annual flowers. They are relatively easy to grow, self-seed, and can even grow in the shade. Over the last decade, downy mildew disease has infected most of the impatiens on the east coast. However, disease-resistant impatiens that were developed around 2014 are resistant to downy mildew disease. With the new genetics, they’re now a great, successful plant! You’ll see results and be happy with your garden. Here are a few tips for planting disease-free impatiens.
Impatiens are technically perennials when grown in warmer climates. They can return each year in the proper conditions. However, these mighty garden bed flowers are treated as annuals in most of the United States.
The disease-resistant impatiens are a great selection for any gardener that wants to enjoy the beauty of the blooms from spring through summer without worrying about losing their plants to disease. You can put the threat of downy mildew out of your mind! Order your disease-resistant impatiens from us at Schwartz Greenhouse today.
