Sun impatiens

Zone Pittsburgh PA 15220 | Mburatti182 added on May 31, 2017 | Answered

I just planted them yesterday We\'ve had a lot of rain. When I looked at them today they look terrible. They were so beautiful and now I\'m worried. Should I move them where there is absolutely no chance of any shade at all. I\'ll try to send you a picture. Please help me keep them growing. Thank you Mary E Buratti

If they simply got pounded by the rain, you can dead head and clean them up. All impatiens don't like too much water, especially on their flowers and foliage. Sunpatiens tolerate more sun than other impatiens, but they should still get a break from intense afternoon sun. This article should help
