Impatiens are the perfect choice for a shady or partly shady spot in your garden! They are low maintenance annuals that bloom all spring, summer, and fall. They don’t die off until the first hard frost. No need to prune; just fertilize lightly with Espoma FT20 Flower Tone Plant Food, 20-Pound every month. Watch out for deer and rabbits though. An excellent deer and rabbit repellent is Bobbex Deer Repellent 32 oz. Ready To Use Spray – B550110
