Another glorious mix of the Divine series of New Guinea Impatiens, this one with rare blues and purples plus white for contrast. Mystic Mix offers an entirely different palette from the typical red-based Impatiens, and it has all the merits you expect of Divine: mildew-resistant, large-flowered, long-blooming, sun-tolerant, and vigorous. You will love landscaping with Divine Mystic Mix!
The Divine series actually grows healthier plants than tissue-propagated New Guinea Impatiens. It is easy to start from seed, and of course you can’t beat the price. If you have hesitated to try the new New Guinea Impatiens from seed, wait no longer! You will be amazed at the results!
Mystic Mix brings you violet, lavender, and white blooms, a trio of seldom-seen Impatiens colors that look terrific together. Reaching 10 to 14 inches high and nearly as wide, these plants all bloom together and achieve the same size, which is a huge boon for those long ribbons of edging and group plantings we all love to use our New Guinea Impatiens for! And since most of us do not have solid sunshine or solid shade, a New Guinea that can take a bit of sun is most highly prized! You can wend this display through a wide range of lights without losing a plant!
Best of all, Divine is superbly mildew resistant, much more so than many varieties grown from plants (tissue cultivated). Healthy, robust, ready to take off and bloom from late spring through summer and well into fall in most climates, Divine is the one you want for all your garden spots!
Start the seeds indoors, germinating them at 70 to 75 degrees F. They need light to germinate, so place them on top of the soil mix if using a seed tray, or on top of the bio sponge if using the Bio Dome. To achieve that high temperature in the chilly winter home, a heat mat is fantastic, but failing that, place the tray or Bio Dome on top of the fridge or in another high area of a warm room. Heat rises, and a few degrees will make a difference.
Germination takes about 10 to 20 days, and Divine has the enviable germination rate of 85% or more. For New Guinea Impatiens, this is fabulous! Grow on the seedlings and transplant when all danger of spring frost is past and the little plants have at least two sets of true leaves. Simple as pie! Packet is 15 seeds.
