This cultivar features large salmon-pink blooms borne over bold gold variegated foliage. Grows 20″ high by 24″ wide. Annual.

ngapricotcream (300x299)Impatiens x hawkeri ‘HARMONY Apricot Cream’ (syn. ‘Danhar276’) – This Danziger introduction features bicolor flowers of creamy apricot with darker coral highlights. These are borne throughout late spring and summer over bronze-green foliage. It is an excellent choice for in-ground bedding, hanging baskets or containers. Grows 12″ high by 16″ wide.

Annual (Zone 10).

ngsunharmonymagenta (300x291)Impatiens x hawkeri ‘HARMONY Magenta’ (syn. ‘Danharmgta’) – The Harmony series was bred for sun tolerance and this beautiful cultivar features large 2″ wide magenta or violet-red flowers and a mounded growth habit with deep green foliage.

ngpaintedparadisewine (289x300)Impatiens x hawkeri ‘Painted Paradise Wine’ – You may want to grow this New Guinea impatiens just for its gorgeous foliage which is green with chartreuse centers and contrasting veins of deep pink. The display really comes together when the 2-3″ wide single rose blooms emerge, making this a premium choice for hanging baskets or containers. Grows 18-36″ high by 12-36″ wide. Z10.
