Divine Impatiens are new to us for 2014. With the challenge presented by Impatiens Downy Mildew (IDM) on regular impatiens (Dazzler, Super Elfin, etc..) , which can turn a beautiful bed of impatiens into bare sticks seemingly overnight, Divines are an IDM-resistant New Guinea-type, with a little different structure and growth habit. It will be interesting to see how they perform in our Alabama heat and humidity.
