For many years, the impatiens, or buzzy lizzy, were known as a houseplant, perfect for growing on the window sill with its pink to white flowers. Breeding helped create varieties for bedding. Flower color remained fairly placid, with mainly pinks, orange and reds. Great for container use, yet plain in a mass bedding. We now have more vibrant impatiens that really do provide drama in mass bedding. Here, 'Blitz Red' impatiens are used in a sweep of bright color that contrasts well against the emerald green of the grass in front.
