Impatiens sodenii
‘La Vida Rosa’

Snow white petals with a harlot’s blush grace this large shrubby Impatiens, a new cross that sports more splashy color than any of the I. sodenii varieties we’ve grown. This is a great plant for filling a shady corner or for a large low maintenance shrub for shade in frost-free climates, forming a strikingly handsome back drop for all your other shady cuties. More tolerant of low water than you might think an Impatiens to be, just side-dress with compost if the leaves yellow and hack it back if it’s stepping out of bounds. Blooms steadily from Spring thru Fall. To 5’x6’.
