Sunpatien Compact Purple is bright magenta-purple that shimmers in the sun. The thick, dark green leaves are the answer to why these typically shade plants can tolerate the sun and humid conditions. Like any New Guinea Impatiens, Sunpatien Compact Purple prefers a moist location, and kept well watered. Sunpatiens prefer full sun to part shade locations, and the compact varieties stand 14-28 inches tall. Compact Purple is well suited for landscape plantings. Consider using Sunpatien Compact Purple as a thriller in your landscapes. It is low maintenance, self cleaning and can handle the warm summer sun.
