Product Details

Enliven part-shade nooks on your patio or in your garden with this stunning combination of proven performers. The magenta blossoms of a long-blooming Impatiens are framed by their variegated gray-green leaves. The crisp edging is echoed in the trailing green-and-white foliage of Plectranthus ‘White Surf’ and the speckled green-and-white leaves of Polka Dot Plant Hippo® White. Tucked beneath the Impatiens are the crisp white flowers of nonstop-flowering Begonia BabyWing® White. 6 plants total, quantities listed in parentheses below. Container not included.

  • Impatiens walleriana Variegata (1)
  • Begonia BabyWing® White (2)
  • Plectranthus coleoides 'White Surf' (1)
  • Hypoestes phyllostachya Hippo® White (2)

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 6 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 18″ in diameter and 12″ deep.

This collection is shown in our Cretan Pot Kioupi, which is sold separately. Click here to order.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Impeccable Customer Service

A viewer from MA

After writing the review of this collection I was immediately contacted by customer service. They reimbursed me for the collection. I am very impressed
I also reordered only the impatiens that came mangled and this one is in much better shape so I am now changing my review to 4 stars.
Excellent customer service
Will rate again after the summer is over and I see if it is as beautiful as anticipated.

A viewer from Connecticut

I have ordered from White Flower Farms several times without a hitch. I loved the look of the Great Barrington Collection but was VERY disappointed when the package arrived. The plants were 3/4 dead and the impatiens were badly broken. I am quite sure the impatiens are not going to make it and since they are the grounding element in this display , it renders the entire thing not at all what I wanted. Very unhappy :(

I am sorry to learn the plants were of poor quality when received Mary. As all of our products are guaranteed to arrive in good condition I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.
Sincerely,
Cathy

I appreciate the WFF response.

A viewer from Rio Rancho, New Mexico

I wrote the negative review of the condition in which my plants arrived, and was immediately contacted and offered a full refund. The five stars are for the excellent customer service.

White Flower Farm

A viewer from CONNECTICUT

The feature plant, the impatiens, arrived in very poor condition. It had completely spilled out of the pot and was crushed and broken, with very little soil still clinging to the roots. I hope I can salvage it, but I won't be ordering again. The other plants are all right, but I may have to replace the impatiens with something from Lowe's.

All White Flower Farm products are guaranteed for full satisfaction and I will be contacting you directly via email regarding compensation Roxane.
Sincerely,
Cathy

Choosing a pot and growing mix: In addition to our Annual Collections, most of the plants we offer can be grown, either singly or in combination, in containers. Any container with a drainage hole in the bottom will suit. The growing medium in containers must drain much more quickly than garden soil.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about 3/4 full. (If you use a dry, peat-moss-based mix, you must first moisten it by placing it in a plastic tub or a wheelbarrow and slowly adding water until the mix is moist but not soggy.) Next, set the plants on the mix one by one, spacing them much more closely than you would when planting them in the ground. Put the tallest plants in the center of the container. Surround them with the shorter, mounding plants, and put trailing plants along the edge. When you are pleased with your arrangement, add potting mix to bring the level to within an inch or so of the container's rim and firm lightly. Finally, water thoroughly.

Container care: Plants in containers need special care. They dry out more quickly than plants in the ground; in the heat of summer, you may have to water them daily. Because of the need for frequent watering, nutrients soon wash out the bottom of the pot. To keep annuals growing and flowering, we suggest you water with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer mixed as directed, every other week in summer. (Other plants—bulbs, perennials, and shrubs—need less fertilizer; a half-strength solution applied once a month through August is enough.) Our Vermont Compost Plus is a mix of 10 ingredients, organic and mineral, that will revitalize last year's potting soil and slowly release nutrients throughout the season. All-Bloom Fertilizer is a 15-30-15 product that can be diluted in water and applied regularly during the growing season. Finally, to look their best, all plants in containers need regular grooming. Remove spent flowers regularly and prune vigorous growers to keep them in check.

Preparing for winter: In climates where winter temperatures drop well below freezing, containers should generally be dismantled in fall. Bring tender plants indoors or toss them on the compost heap; plant hardy bulbs, perennials, and shrubs in the ground. Most containers should be emptied of potting mix and stored under cover; only plastic and fiberglass pots can be left out over winter without cracking. In mild-winter climates—say, Zone 8 (10°F) and warmer—hardy plants can generally be left outdoors in containers with little risk either to the plants or to the pots.
