This is what our Sunpatiens look like. For some reason one side of the beds look better than the other on almost all the plants but you can especially tell with the sunpatiens.
One thing for sure is that for them to do well, you need to keep them watered good. Which is pretty much what we expected they would need.
Several of our landscapers have expressed disappointment in how theirs performed. The ones we grew were the compact varieties. Maybe the regular ones do better?
It has also been 100+ for the past 18 days and no rain for the last 2 months.
