What has caused the leaves on my impatiens plants to turn yellow and curl?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 21 July 2014 02:47 PM

Impatiens leaves curling and turning yellow or white are typical symptoms of cold damage.  This is more likely to be seen early in the year when growing on young plants or if they have been planted outdoors too early.   Impatiens are more sensitive to low temperatures than other bedding plants and young plants should ideally be grown on at a temperature of 18°C (65°F).  Although some leaves may drop off, if the plants are given more warmth or weather conditions improve they very often recover.
