Project Description

Beacon™ Select Mix Impatiens

Impatiens walleriana

Introduced by PanAmerican Seed
Hybridized by PanAmerican Seed

PanAmerican Seed began searching for a disease-resistant Impatiens soon after impatiens downy mildew (IDM) took hold. Collaborating on the project was a team in The Netherlands, led by breeder Ruud Brinkkemper, and a crew in the United States consisting of product manager Lisa Lacy, plant pathologist Dr. Colleen Warfield, and many others. Available in six colors and two mixes, you can fill baskets, window boxes, and shade landscapes with confidence. Beacon™ is easy to grow. It has the same plant structure, flowering time, flower size and culture as traditional garden impatiens. Beacon has been proven with high resistance to IDM from sowing all the way through the gardening season.

Available in seed from Ball Seed (Booth 5043)
