Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed'

Impatiens walleriana

Half-hardy Annual

Vigorous, versatile and floriferous, Busy Lizzies are guaranteed to brighten up even the most shaded areas of your garden, giving a bold splash of colour all through the summer and well into autumn. It's little wonder they're the nation's favourite bedding plant. They keep blooming through sun or rain! Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed' is a compact variety with a magical array of colours in solid shades and bicolours. Back at long last - we removed traditional Busy Lizzies (Impatiens walleriana) from our range several years ago due to the spread of impatiens downy mildew in the UK. Positive reports from gardeners around the UK, along with problem-free results from our technical trials in Suffolk in the past two years, have given us the confidence to bring traditional Busy Lizzies back. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Use as a colourful garnish in salads or float in cold drinks. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plug plants can be planted directly into flower pouches. For baskets, beds and window boxes, pot up plugs and miniplugs for transplanting at a later date. Grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions, watering sparingly until plugs are fully rooted in. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise busy lizzie plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting in their final positions.
Grow busy lizzies in any well drained soil, in sun or semi shade. Feed and water frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of colourful busy lizzie flowers.

  1. Nice healthy plants

    By Lisa Smith 01-07-2016

    My 36 bizzie lizzie plug plants arrived in perfect condition in April. I noticed that most plugs contained 2 or sometimes 3 little plants and so being a thrifty gardener, I teased them apart carefully and planted each one in a separate cell of a 24 hole seed tray insert, thereby increasing my stock to 68 plants. This may have had the effect of slowing them up a little as they did take several weeks to get going. They are now planted in the garden and doing well, a lovely mix of colours.
