How to Plant Sunpatiens on Garden Beds

Impatients, also known as Touch Me Not Plants, is a very popular flowering plant, suitable for garden beds and containers. Originating from the forest ground, it must grow in the shade to avoid being burnt by the sun. Sunpatiens is a relatively new hybrid of impala, which thrives in sufficient sunshine and hot and humid weather, greatly expanding the area where gardeners can spread the color of impala. Read on to learn more about how to grow the sun and sun patian plant care.

What are solar plants?

Sunpaciens is a hybrid bred by Sakata, a Japanese seed company. It is an elaborate combination of wild "traditional" impala (a plant species native to Indonesia) and the larger, heat loving impala hawker native to New Guinea. The result is that all kinds of impala thrive in sufficient sunshine and hot and humid weather, and bloom directly from spring to autumn. It is an excellent container and bedding flower with lasting color.

Interestingly, the Indonesian government agreed that Sakata can continue to use its country's "indigenous genetic resources" in order to obtain more SunPatiens varieties, but they must follow the guidelines established by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). This basically ensures the protection of plant rich countries such as Indonesia or South Africa.

Sampatien Plant Care

It is very easy to grow solar plants and the maintenance cost is low. Plants like well drained soil rich in organic matter. They grow well in containers and garden beds. They like plenty of sunshine or partial shade.

For the first week or two after planting, they should be watered every day to build them up. After that, they only need to be watered moderately, and can usually recover from the withering with a large amount of water.

The solar companion plant is any colorful flowering plant, which also enjoys sufficient sunlight. When planting solar plants, especially if they are grouped with other plant varieties, it is important to know how much space you want to fill. Sunflower plants fall into three size categories: compact, sprawling and vigorous.

Compact and spreading equipment are ideal for containers. (Compact plants remain small, while spreading plants fill baskets or flowerpots spectacularly). Vibrant plants are best suited for garden beds because they grow quickly and fill space quickly and effectively with bright colors.
