Do you supply any impatiens that are not affected by downy mildew?

We're delighted to say that yes, we do!

In recent years Impatiens walleriana plants have been attacked by the fungal disease downy mildew. The good news is that this disease is specific to walleriana and does not affect the New Guinea Impatiens.

As a result we have introduced the New Guinea Florific Impatien. The plants grow to a height of 25-30cm (10-12") and produce large flowers throughout summer, continuing until the first frosts. 

Our New Guinea Impatiens will give a colourful, downy mildew free display, in your borders and containers.
