This plant is a prolific bloomer and very pretty in the container. I didn’t give it 5 stars because it is quite messy when the blooms die - a lot of petals everywhere. Also, if the spent blooms fall on the leaves, the turn brown and stick to the leaves, which necessitates removing them by hand. I think if I tried them again, I would forgo the container and try them in the landscape. That said, if the downsides don’t bother you, it is a beautiful plant and a great bloomer.

I put these in window boxes that are mostly in the shade. I would say they did thrive but their habit is very untidy. They say deadheading isn't necessary, which is true, but the plants leave many spent flowers on the patio below. From a distance they are pretty but when you get closer it's a little messy. I hope the breeders can develop a double impatiens plant that is a better self-cleaner because they are such a pretty flower.Katy, Oregon, United States, 10 weeks ago
I tried 2 of these in different pots in shaded areas. I was so excited for them to spread out & flower, but they stayed small & the flowers mostly fell off before they peaked at bloom. I figured they’d stay compact, but was hoping for them to double their size, at least. I used Miracle-Gro every 2 weeks, but still nothing. I had such high hopes, but I was disappointed.HM, 11 weeks ago
I really liked this double impatiens. I planted it in the garden in a shady spot. It bloomed well all summer. I combined it with the white double impatiens. They looked so pretty together.Daphne Tot, Ontario, Canada, 4 years ago
