Impatiens wallerana-Impatiens. Unfortunately, the impatiens in Fargo were located in the lowest area of the beds and the ground was saturated for an extended period of time. This resulted in loss of vigor and delayed bloom for most of the Fargo cultivars. Despite this, 'Carnival Lilac', 'Carnival Pink', 'Carnival Red', and 'Mosaic Rose' managed to do well by the second evaluation. The cultivars in Dickinson did poorly, as usual.
