Can Impatiens Take Some Frost

Anonymous added on May 27, 2014 | Answered

I just planted some impatiens and then the weather got cold on us for a few nights. Now they look a little white. Are they hardy enough that they will survive for the most part, or do they need to be replaced? I had no idea we would have frost again when I planted them. And there was no way I could cover them, as the area was too big.

You can trim back the damaged foliage (provided the threat of any more frost is over) and as long as it's still green towards the base of the plant, it should regrow. Otherwise, you will need to replace the plants.
