    Maintenance Notes: 

    Self-cleaning; no deadheading necessary. Infinity will do well in the ground or in containers. While New Guinea Impatiens are often sold in hanging baskets they need a lot of water to do well and it may be difficult to maintain appropriate moisture levels during the heat of the summer. They will be easier to keep hydrated in large pots or in the ground. They will do best in shady locations, but have been shown to do fine in hot sun as long as they are well watered. If the plants do get dry and are wilted, even if they are severely wilted, water them immediately and they should bounce back within several hours. They are generally easy care with little to no maintenance, other than watering, necessary. If you do want to trim them to improve habit this can be done at anytime using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears.

    A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and light fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    • Infinity Pink New Guinea Impatiens I was looking for a plant to replace impatiens which was my go-to for a dappled shade garden. I found a local grower who had these in flats and I was able to purchase four flats. I planted them in late April but they did not take off until the weather turned warm in early June. They are beautiful with large pink blossoms and dark green foliage. They have taken well to an area with more sun. They provide a striking contrast to hostas that I have in the back of the border. I would highly recommend Infinity Pink New Guinea Impatiens as the perfect answer to the downy mildew which has been affecting traditional impatiens.
