Impatiens Athena Mix


Athena Mix

Impatiens Seeds

Fancy semi-double frilly blooms bedeck healthy, vigorous plants that stay low and spread quickly - that's the Athena Impatiens series.

This formulated mix includes all of the Athena impatiens colors, including pale pink Appleblossom, Coral Pink, Bright Purple, Orange, Orange Flash, Red, and Red Flash. Athena Mix would be a perfect showy and eye-catching ground cover in shady areas or even a large scale hanging container garden in a partially shaded space. Imagine a wall of pretty 1.5 inch blooms cascading down a shaded standing wall with built-in planter boxes! Athena Mix impatiens grow just 8-10 inches tall and spread up to 18 inches, blooming earlier than many other impatiens and continuing nonstop until late in the fall. Plants are healthy and vigorous, with blooms that are long-lasting, beautiful, and fade resistant.

Growing Athena Mix Impatiens Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

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. Water impatiens early in the day, foliage and stems will be dry by evening, plants less likely to be bothered by slugs and snails. Impatiens are excellent container or hanging basket plants. Bloom season is long, from spring until frost. Impatiens flowers attract hummingbirds.
