Downy mildew has caused many problems for busy lizzie fans, so we recommend these great busy lizzie plants that are resistant to this devastating disease. Try the SunPatiens® or New Guinea varieties - easy to grow, robust plants for all weathers and garden positions.
Busy Lizzie 'Sun Harmony'
Impatiens x hawkeriA superior Busy Lizzie in almost every way! These strong growing, mildew resistant plants are larger than other varieties using fewer plants to cover the same area, making them great value for money. Superb vigour and a strong root system make this New Guinea Impatiens particularly fast to establish. The thick, weather resistant petals withstand rain, wind, humidity, scorching heat and chilly shade to ensure a long lasting display. Busy Lizzie 'Sun Harmony' is perfect for creating a reliable display in patio containers, beds and borders. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 40cm (16"). More info
Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed'
Impatiens wallerianaVigorous, 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. 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").
