Q.My New Guinea Impatiens flowers seem faded

Zone Vancouver, Canada | Bsulliv1 added on June 18, 2014 | Answered

My New Guinea Impatiens seem very healthy and the flowers are plentiful. However, the new flowers are not as colorful and vibrant as they were a month ago. The color seems faded or muted. Is this normal or are they lacking something ?

The flowers are in planters. They are hanging on the patio railing. There is a roof over hang above so they are not completely open to the elements. The weather has been sunny, but not hot, so conditions seem good. The foliage is green and healthy. Far more flowers than foliage. Flower color just not as brilliant as previous month.

Increased sunlight of the summer months could be responsible for flower fading.
