Athena covers the shady garden with double and semi-double blooms of apple blossom, orange, red, bright purple, red-white and orange-white bi-colours. Dark green leaves will bring out the flower colours on these robust plants that reach 30-60 cm (12-24") in height and 45-60 cm (18-24") spread. Flowers steadily until the frosts of fall arrive!
Note: Avoid planting where Impatien Powdery Mildew disease is endemic.
How to Grow
Start indoors in a soil-less mix 8-10 weeks early. Sow on the surface of the growing medium and keep at 21-24 C (70-75 F) for the 10-21 day germination period. Grow-on under lights at a cooler temperature range of 15-18 C (60-65 F). Hardening-off before transplanting is essential. Plant outside in a semi- shady site after the danger of frost has passed. Space plants 20-25 cm (8-10") apart in the garden. Avoid planting where Impatiens Downey Mildew (IDM) is endemic.
