The Q&A Archives: Plantin Impatiens in Direct Sun

Question: I have just planted 300 impatiens in the sun for most of the day--they will be watered and fertilized when necessary. Will they make it in the hot sun? Thanks. Mike

Answer: Your impatiens will probably fry by midsummer! I'd either move them to a partly shady spot that gets only morning sun, only try growing taller plants to shade them such as shrubs such as lilac, perennial flowers such as phlox or tall annuals such as nicotiana. They may be okay now, but the bright sun will eventually get to them.
