Impatiens 'Accent Violet Star'

New for 2000!

Impatiens 'Accent Violet Star'Picture: ©copyright Graham Rice

This new impatiens is one of the best of its type. Many star-style busy lizzies are too unpredictable &endash; the white star markings vary in size and shape depending on the weather. But this recent addition to the outstanding Accent Series has proved to be less affected by changes in the weather and although the exact pattern of its markings can vary a little, it rarely disappears altogether. The contrast between the white star and the violet background is very dramatic and looks especially good in dappled shade. (Mr Fothergills Seeds)

Type: Half-hardy annual
Height: 8-10in/20-25cm
