Still blooming well into Autumn

I started the seeds in our basement in mid March and by mid May, they were blooming beautifully. I love the white with just the hint of color in the middle. We are well into Autumn here in MN and they are still bloom. Will definitely grow these again next yr. Thanks Park Seed for another yr of successful seeds!!

Advice on getting rid of bugs on my impatiens

Today I just noticed bugs on my impatiens. They look just like miniscule coffee grounds. They are black, round, don't move, and they disintegrate into the air when I brush them off. The tops & undersides of the leaves and flowers are not destroyed in any way. No holes in the leaves, no dying plants. I did at first think they were coffee grounds however there is no way coffee grounds could get there. If it makes a difference, my plants are in a window box. I have just clipped all the leaves and flowers back :( and would like to buy a remedy that kills this bug. Any ideas of the bug--and the remedy? They are not aphids
