The Q&A Archives: Impatiens for West TX

Question: I am trying to identify a variety of impatiens that would be taller (12"-18") with a solid orange bloom. These would be grown in arid West Texas. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Marshall Moore Brunswick, ME

Answer: I think I'd try the 'Tango' variety of New Guinea impatiens. It's solid orange and stands about 18" tall. Keep it in the part shade, well watered and out of the hot winds of West Texas and it should do okay. Check page 35 of the 1997 Burpee catalog.
