Impatience Still Being Grown

5-8-2013
light frost this morning but no damage...
I took this picture yesterday at a commercial greenhouse. The plants in the foreground are Impatiens walleriana.
    I was surprised to see Impatience in production because last summer a strain of downy mildew destroyed  this species  throughout the eastern US.  I had heard there would be no impatience grown this year, but as you can see plants will be available. My thought is that it would be a good idea to not plant impatience this summer.
