Shine more light on colour for the shade with NEW lighthouse mixes
We’re introducing NEW 3-colour Beacon mixes named after well-known lighthouses in locations where Impatiens downy mildew has been a significant problem. These have been trialed and approved to grow well together and look vibrant in the shade, and they offer high resistance to the currently known and widely prevalent populations of Plasmopara destructor (the rename of P. obduscens), the cause of Impatiens downy mildew. All three mixes are suitable for packs, pots, hanging baskets and in-ground beds.
Beacon Impatiens will continue to help “shine the light” on lesser-known diseases by supporting a different charitable organisation each year with a percentage of sales. Visit for more details.

Plug crop time: 4 to 5 weeks
Transplant to finish: 3 to 4 weeks

  • Beacon impatiens exhibits high resistance to the currently known and widely prevalent populations of Plasmopara destructor, which cause Impatiens downy mildew (IDM).
  • Beacon impatiens offers the opportunity to bring back into production a well-known, in-demand, easy-to-grow and versatile product for increased sales.
  • Extensive trialing has proven that Beacon impatiens provides genetic high resistance to IDM. Beacon is not immune to IDM; there are scenarios where preventative IDM fungicides may be recommended.
  • With a plant structure, flowering time, flower size and crop culture that is similar to Super Elfin, Beacon impatiens is easy to incorporate into production planning.
  • Fast-filling, season-long colour for gardens and landscapes.

A warm-toned red on upright mounded, moderately vigorous plants with mid-green foliage. Plant vigour is slightly larger than Super Elfin XP Red, and the flower size is slightly smaller.
