Garden success has never been simpler with easy-to-plant, easy-to-grow SunPatiens®. The thicker petals and tough foliage are less prone to disease, and their strong sturdy stems tolerate high heat and humidity, rain, and adverse weather conditions.
Sunpatiens - Easy to Plant, Exceptional Performance
These remarkable plants represent a breeding breakthrough: the robust, sun-loving Impatiens thrive in full sun or part shade and deliver continuous performance and beautiful colors all through summer and right up to the first harsh frosts of winter. An extra huge plus is that the SunPatiens are unaffected by Downey Mildew.
Giving Back to Nature Since the Early 2000s
SunPatiens has been giving back to nature since the early 2000s, when Sakata Seed Corporation, the breeder of SunPatiens, reached an agreement with the Indonesian Government (IAARD) in relation to the botanical species of Impatiens from which SunPatiens is partly derived. The agreement that was reached between Sakata and Indonesia was a forerunner of the current Nagoya Protocol. This protocol determines the rights and obligations of the countries that signed it. This means that for every plant that is sold, a contribution is made to Indonesia for local research into the maintenance of the biodiversity in that country. When you buy SunPatiens, you give back to nature.
Air Purifying Benefits
An outstanding side-effect is that these plants are beneficial for their immediate surroundings. Independent research has proved that SunPatiens absorbs nitrogen dioxide 3 to 4 times better than the average plant. Planting SunPatiens can therefore contribute to air purification. In countries with a warm climate, it has even been demonstrated that they can contribute to air cooling.

SunPatiens® Vigorous is the SunPatiens series most used for landscape and mass plantings. Constant development in these genetics has led to better control of the ratio between vigor and plant habit.
