Uniformity across a series is something that all breeders strive for. With SunStanding Impatiens, we have achieved perfect uniformity for growers and gardeners through our fresh innovative breeding techniques, forcing new color expressions on genetically identical plants. How does this state-of-the-art breeding work? The breeding process, which is induced by radiation therapy, triggers random color differences. It is a one-step process that accelerates the development of novel valuable traits, such as the expression of petal color. Since it uses a plant’s own genetic-make up, the plant’s other horticultural characteristics remain basically the same. It is forcing and expediting the natural process of spontaneous color variations. This means that when you select varieties from within a family such as Apollo, all colors are genetically matched for size, flower magnitude, and timing—the only difference is the flower color.

Understanding the SunStanding Families Our SunStanding Series is put together in 4 families that are genetically identical across colors within each family, making predictability for the grower and landscaper a breeze.

Multiple Options SunStanding Impatiens are available in multiple product forms for any growing situation, including traditional unrooted cuttings, Quick Turn™ URC, AutoStix™, Basewell™, and Rooted Liners.

Quick Turn™ Quick Turn cuttings, an exclusive product form from Dümmen Orange, are treated with the perfect formula of light levels, growth regulators, and age, to create a cutting that is initiated and ready to bloom on a much younger plant. This product shortens crop times and has plants flowering at a younger stage, eliminating the need for growth regulators before the point of sale.

Basewell™ Basewell cuttings give growers a fast finish with the fewest steps necessary. Pre-rooted at our offshore farms, Basewell rooted cuttings can be directly planted in packs and pots, eliminating the need for transplanting liners at a later date. All SunStanding Basewell cuttings are also pretreated with our exclusive Quick Turn system, so they not only root fast, but finish fast. SunStanding packs can be finished in 4- to 6-weeks from direct planting Basewell rooted cuttings, depending on location, light levels and temperatures.

Basewell cuttings are offered as single units or packed in AutoStix strips for automatic transplanting.


Transplant • Transplant Basewell cuttings directly into the finished container. Avoid damaging roots during handling.

4. Once roots are to the side of the

container, grow under normal finishing conditions for temperature, light, irrigation, fertilizer, pinching, and plant growth regulators.


• Water in thoroughly after transplant to moisten the growing medium and ensure it has close contact around the roots.

• Continue with light irrigations until the plant is fully hydrated and roots reach the side of the container.

• Finish plants on a standard irrigation schedule.
