Shade Impatiens Alternatives
Sheridan Nurseries has chosen to stop carrying single and double Shade Impatiens. Downy Mildew, a disease that is currently affecting Impatiens across North America, is now widespread throughout Canada.
Even though it may take months for the effects of the disease to show on Shade Impatiens planted this spring, we feel this decision was necessary to halt the spread of the disease and, hopefully, someday make planting them as carefree as in the past.
Over the winter, we have secured commitments from our local growers to grow more of the best alternative plants to replace Shade Impatiens in your garden. All of these are long-blooming, semi to full shade tolerant and not susceptible to Downy Mildew.
Thanks for choosing to garden with us.
