The ultimate cherry red of a classic car, 1950s lipstick, or a malt shop’s decor, Lollipop Cherry Red will bring a smile to your face and some bright and bold red to your window boxes, patio containers, or shaded garden areas.
Lollipop Cherry Red impatiens bloom early and often, creating a carpet of bright cherry blooms over mounded plants reaching 11 inches tall and up to 12 inches wide. Plants are well branched and stretch-resistant, never leggy, easy to grow, and vigorous. Keep Lollipop Cherry Red out of full sun and well-hydrated and she’ll reward you with months of pretty red blooms.
Growing Lollipop Cherry Red 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. 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.
