    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.

    • I purchased 3 different colors of New Guinea impatiens, Blushing Lilac, Blushing Crimson and Orange. The Blushing Lilac and Orange have been great but for whatever reason the Blushing Crimson wilts at the drop of a hat. It receives the exact amount of sun and water the other 2 do so I'm not sure why. It always recovers at least but still strange. I wouldn't get this particular one again.
