The design flexibility of the SunPatiens® range is impressive. With an upright, V-shaped form, the large framework produced by the Vigorous series creates stunning backdrops and an intense display of colour, suited to amenity beds, gardens and large patio containers.

The versatile Spreading series features a strong, mounding habit and is bred for faster coverage - perfect for landscape beds, plus it makes striking hanging baskets and patio containers.

Better for patio containers and hanging baskets

The Compact series is best for smaller spaces and for mingling with other annuals, this type is excellent for patio containers, window boxes and selected colours make striking hanging baskets.
