One of our prettiest and showiest impatiens, Athena Red Flash impatiens brings the wow factor to your hanging baskets or container plantings. Athena Red Flash produces incredible semi double rosebud style blooms on compact (8-10 inch) plants with a spreading habit of up to 18 inches, making them perfect for hanging containers or shaded beds. Athena Red Flash’s bright red and white blooms are reminiscent of peppermint candies, with interesting color variations sure to turn heads. Plants bloom early and over a very long season, are vigorous and healthy with lush foliage, and flowers are very long-lasting. We couldn’t recommend Athena Red Flash impatiens more highly.
