Q.New Guinea Impatiens From Seed

Zone Cedar Rapids, Iowa | Anonymous added on May 21, 2021 | Answered

My new Guinea impatiens is about 10″ tall, growing fast straight up!!!. And it’s starting to climb just like a morning glory…why? The seed came from the plant I bought last year. It didn’t climb at all. It’s really aggressive too. I’ll have to get a trellis very soon.

New Guinea impatiens are hybrids so growing from seed won't produce the same plant you had last year. You can either take it out or enjoy it as a new discovery.
