My absolute favourite Sunpatiens is this variegated leaf variety with bright pink flowers. I have bought them for 4 years in a row from Lowes and Rona and they are very tolerant to my very hot south facing deck in Vancouver Canada. When I forget to water they look absolutely dead but wow you just have to soak them and they pop back up again in a few hours! Together with a dark red coleus looks absolutely stunning.

This is such a beautiful full plant and when it is droopy, a little water and it springs right back-my favorite colorful plant ever.Denise, Iowa, United States, 2 years ago
They are holding up in the hot hot Michigan Summer and turning into little bushes. FILLED with flowers. They are beautiful and everyone is asking me where I got them! Purchased again 2021 - after a slow start (very hot June) they once again are the start of my garden. My favorite annual! Purchased again 2022 - The are hands down the most beautiful SunPatiens - variegated leaves intense pink flowers - they turn into a hedge of ever blooming flowers - I can't say enough about these. This year I received healthy giant plants, can not wait for them to start blooming!DEB, Michigan, United States, 2 years ago
