Impatiens: March Plant of the Month

Spring is here and it’s almost time for spring planting!

We are in the process of switching from pansies to impatiens.

In honor of that, our March Plant of the Month is the impatiens.

Impatiens do a very good job of adding color to a flower bed or bowl. They come in a variety of bright colors like white, red, pink, violet, coral and purple. They fill in spaces very well and quickly grow. They are showy flowers. As such, one of the common names for impatiens is Busy Lizzy. Though the origin is unknown, one can assume the name comes from how productive this plant is as producing blooms. In addition to growing so well, another benefit to impatiens is their ability to thrive in partial or full shade. This allows us, and other growers, place them in areas where other flowers wouldn’t do as well.

Check out some of our use of impatiens at various client locations.
