M20902 - Cottage Farms 6-pc Compact Viva SunPatiens Collection
Of all the plants I purchased last year this one was the best. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly they grew and withstood the heat of the summer. All 6 plants thrived no matter their location around my house. Although I cannot account for issues other purchasers may have had, I would recommend this to others.
I planted them in the front of my house and was more then pleased. My Grandma has grown flowers her whole life and told me that she has never seen such beautiful SunPatiens. I LOVE THEM!!!! Great Job guys:)
I ordered the Compact Viva SunPatients last year. When I ordered these, I knew I was taking a chance because there were no reviews for me to read. First, all 6 plants arrived looking healthy. Second, I followed the directions regarding planting and caring for the plants. Third, the folliage developed but not as advertised; and 4 of the 6 plants bloomed in September, after the summer season and not as large as advertised. The other 2 plants produced about 4 flowers each and were very small in comparision to the other 4.
I gave this product 3 stars because the folliage was nice. Otherwise, I would have given it 2 stars. I would not recommend this item because I did not get what was advertised.
I bought 2 sets of these last year because I wanted something different, the varigated leaves sold them for me. However, they did not perform well in sun without getting brown burn spots on the leaves and were quite ugly just from that. They do grow and bloom but they certainly are not the show stopper the pictures show, thank goodness I had placed them in the flower bed with other flowers, I would have been very disappointed and embarrassed at the brown spot flower bed people would view. Bypass these and also because they drink water like you have an endless supply for them!
