Intensely saturated and vibrant, Athena Bright Purple impatiens are an excellent choice for hanging containers or the spiller in a mixed container garden. Covered in semi-double 1.5 inch blooms early in the growing season all the way to late fall, Athena Bright Purple stands out among other impatiens, with rosebud-style flowers in a gorgeous shade of ultraviolet. Athena Bright Purple stays low (just 8-10 inches tall) and spreads luxuriously, up to 18 inches across, to create a beautiful carpet of blooms in your shady beds or cascade from a planter box. Plants are healthy, vigorous, and produce pretty green foliage to set off its masterpiece of rich color.
Growing Athena Bright Purple Impatiens Seeds
Plant Impatiens Seeds: Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75°F., seeds germinate within 10-20 days. Transplant seedlings into the garden 8-12 in. apart after all danger of frost.
Grow Impatiens: Morning sun to dappled shade. Shade preferred in hot climates. New Guinea impatiens will tolerate somewhat more sun; avoid hot afternoon sun. Keep soil evenly moist, not soggy.
