Of all the impatiens out there, in a dizzying array of color choices, we’re partial to the New Guinea hybrids for their large
leaves and 3-inch-wide flowers of pink, lavender, purple, red, and more. The vibrant orange-flowered New Guineas are positively
sizzling in chocolate-brown containers.
To edge shaded borders, go for the low- growing Busy Lizzie impatiens, which cover themselves in 2-inch-wide, five-petaled flowers in nearly every color but blue.
Perennial in zones 14, 24; H1, H2; annual elsewhere.
