Impatiens, Salsa Dancer Hybrid
Intense colors to spice up shady beds, patios and decks—summer into fall.
Who says impatiens have to be sedate? This sexy mix creates a brilliant, flowing carpet of color—shades so bright you usually see them only in full sun. The plants are very compact and literally cover themselves in flowers in a range of deep, rich shades of ruby, magenta, violet, scarlet and dark salmon. Grows best in shade to part-shade.
Start indoors in a warm, well-lighted area about 8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow shallowly in seed-Starting formula. Keep evenly moist.
How to Grow
Seedlings emerge in 18-28 days at 70-75°F. Before transfer to garden, accustom to conditions by moving to a sheltered place outside for a week. SET PLANTS 12" apart in a semi to fully shaded area with average soil after all danger of frost.
Impatiens make beautiful temporary groundcovers in shade gardens. They also can be planted among shade-loving perennials such as hostas to bring summer-long color to shady flower beds. Plant them in large drifts and let them fill in, or use them as edging plants along walkways, terraces, or at the front of a bed or border. Impatiens even make nice additions to container plantings. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and other beneficials visit many species of impatiens.
