Sunpatiens varieties are virus free. Look pretty much like the old impatiens but with much greater vigour......i recently posted a picture of 3 in a trough but in the ground they are super vigorous. first year for me with these new varieties. The New Guinea,hybrids are too stiff, upright and lack the charm of impatiens and sunpatiens to the extent that my over wimtered mew guineas,have not been planted out. They prob will be given away now.
the,traditional,busy lizzies are now so infected with virus that they are not worth growing in my opinion....why would you when the new strains are so much better?
i am assuming propagation will be same as old impatiens so I can keep colours apart. I currently grow magenta and white. Cuttings taken in September and placed in water should,overwinter neatly on a warm windowsill.
