Compact SunPatiens® are dense, bushy plants that are well-branched and covered with flowers. They grow 24” to 36" tall and equally wide in the garden and slightly shorter (18-24" tall) in containers and baskets. In the garden, the Compact series is early to flower and well behaved with an upright, beefy habit. Available in seven colors, Compact SunPatiens are the perfect choice for exceptional patio pots and hanging baskets as well as the garden.
Garden performance of SunPatiens® has been tested in many sites around the world including UK, USA, France, Japan, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Guatemala. Trial results show exceptional performance under cool or warm conditions, in rain, wind, in direct sun or shade. Trials show SunPatiens are far more vigorous, have much greater flower power and are considerably longer lived compared to standard New Guinea varieties. In addition, trials show SunPatiens outperform many other classes of annuals such as geranium, petunia and vinca when it comes to season long performance.
In Cannes, Southern France, SunPatiens® were planted throughout parks during the spring. Normally, due to extreme hot conditions, re-planting is necessary during the summer period. But not with SunPatiens®! Due to the extraordinary flower power, vigorous growth and strong roots of SunPatiens®, the parks looked beautiful all summer. Trials in Athens, Georgia, USA show similar results where April plantings look remarkable throughout the extreme heat and humidity of summer all the way until the first hard frost.
