For years, Impatiens have been old reliable for shady areas providing the perfect summer color for those tough areas.  However, in the last few years they have been struck by a destructive fungus called Downey Mildew.  By July of last year, all of our Impatiens planted on customers properties had to be removed and disposed of due to the disease.  Therefore, we are recommending against planting them for the near future.  Nursuries are still selling them and have advertised them as Downey free in the greenhouses…but proceed with caution.  We recommend switching to other plants that will thrive in shady areas.
