Product Details

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

  • 2 Impatiens walleriana Variegata
  • 2 Begonia BabyWing® White
  • 2 Plectranthus coleoides 'White Surf'

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

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




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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

These impatiens are stunning!
I receive so many compliments on them.
The plants are fragile, but once they establish themselves, they thrive. These are my go to item every year, when I load my WFF shopping cart. On occasion, I receive a plant with a broken stem. Once planted, the plant thrives and sends out new shoots.

I really liked it.

At first the plants looked like nothing but by mid summer and the finish of summer it was stunning and huge. A beautiful arrangement.

Mostly Mangled

The highlight of this arrangement is the impatiens...however, after two tries, my conclusion is that they should not be shipped. My original order arrived with an impatiens that looked smashed with all four of the stems snapped completely off. The other plants didn't fare much better, but were salvageable. I was sent a replacement impatiens, and it also arrived in pretty bad shape. It has one stem still standing with most of the leaves smashed off. So who knows what this arrangement will ultimately look like, but it's hard to imagine it will ever remotely resemble the picture since half of the plants look like they barely survived a war.

Very disappointed

The pictures displayed show 3x impatiens that are sent. They only sent 1 impatien and like other reviews, it was broken and in bad shape. Also, maybeii it was just me but I thought they were shipping a container that already had all of the plants planted, not all separated.

Impeccable Customer Service

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.

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. Many gardeners purchase special potting mixes, which we offer and are available at most garden supply stores. These mixes are specially designed for container gardening and help ensure growing success. If you happen to have your own compost pile (or other composting system), it’s always helpful to add rich compost to any potting mix. If you don’t currently have a compost pile, consider creating one so you have ready access to compost for all your planting needs.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about ¾ 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 and smaller pot sizes may dry out faster due to less soil volume. In the heat of summer, we recommend thorough watering and protection from too much afternoon sun. You may have to water plants daily, or even twice 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 pinch back any vigorous growers that become too large for their container.

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.
